Marsh area along McDonald Rd.

Common Green Darner (Anax junius)
Observed
I don't see as many of these as I do the Chalks, Dots and Frosteds but I see them constantly chasing around. They never stop or hover long enough to get a decent identifying picture.
Racket-tailed Emerald (Dorocordulia libera)
Photographed
Many especially around the area of the Handicapped Access duck blind on McDonald Rd.

Many of the dragons flying around are Frosted, Spottail or Chalk Fronts. There are hundreds. Quite a few are smashed on the road.

Marsh Bluet (Enallagma ebrium)
Photographed
I think they are Marsh, but the reddish tint in the female is confusing me.

A lot of Sedge sprites flying around in the tall grasses.
Taiga Bluet (Coenagrion resolutum)
Photographed
Quite sure these are the Taiga.
