Marsh area along McDonald Rd.

Common Green Darner (Anax junius)
Observed
Quite a few flying all over, some looked to be chasing other types of dragonflies.
Spiny Baskettail (Epitheca spinigera)
Photographed
Many tenerals. There were areas of clouds of dragonflies, most of the baskettails were not in the marshy areas but more in the field areas.

Chalk-fronted Corporal (Ladona julia)
Photographed
The Chalk-fronted Corporals were closer to the swampy areas than the baskettails along with some teneral dot-tails.

Dot-tailed Whiteface (Leucorrhinia intacta)
Photographed
Mixed with Chalk-fronted Corporals which really made the Dot-tails look small.

Four-spotted Skimmer (Libellula quadrimaculata)
Photographed
I saw fewer of these than the Chalk-fronts and Dot-tails.
