Sidie Hollow Lake County Park, starting at the main campground. This is located 2 miles south of Hwy 56 and west of Viroqua.

Blue-eyed Darner (Rhionaeschna multicolor)
Collected
I was trying to catch a Prince Baskettail and missed what I thought was a pair fighting. As they flew away, I realized that one was a Darner with Blue eyes!! I was really disappointed until I caught one an hour later.
