June 4, 2016 — Shawano County
Mountain Bay Trail, From Thornton to a little past Kroenke Creek, west
Both male and female Horned Clubtails were observed. Very hard to get a decent picture, the female seemed especially elusive.The female I finally took a few pictures of with a 500mm lens and cropped it heavily.
I saw a few of these. I only managed to get a photo of a female.
I saw only two that I was able to definitely identify.
Common Whitetail (Plathemis lydia)
Many of these all over. Some would fly alongside while peddling our bikes down the trail.
Dot-tailed Whiteface (Leucorrhinia intacta)
A good number of these.
Four-spotted Skimmer (Libellula quadrimaculata)
Saw a few in different spots while chasing the Horned Clubtails.
A good number of these in a few different spots along the way.
I saw only the one.
