August 15, 2017 — Door County

At the Ridges Sanctuary, Baileys Harbor, WI. I saw a few near the south end of the pond and a few more near the (north?) end of Sandy, flying over the swale.

Hine's Emerald (Somatochlora hineana)
Observed
I saw two Hine's flying above among the trees just across the road from the rangefinder, at the entrance to the beach. Did not have time to photograph but their distinct "helicopter" look helped with the identification.

The White-faced Meadowhawks were at The Ridges in great abundance this day. Everywhere!
