Prince Baskettail (Epitheca princeps)
Observed a few flying over the lake. They'd often fly quite close by, within a few feet away at eye level.
A couple of males flying and guarding territory.
Several around the lake
Eastern Pondhawk (Erythemis simplicicollis)
A few males near the boardwalk
Photographed one over the lake in flight. Another appeared to oviposit, touching down to briefly drag it's abdomen in the water.
Several males and at least two females. There appeared to be several around the lake, but they were most easily seen and photographed from the pier.
Several seen around the lake, including mating pairs.
