First Odes of the Season

April 29, 2007 at 2:50 pm (Uncategorized)

Today we took advantage of the nice weather and went for a walk at the Jamestown Audubon Society. I was hoping to find some Eastern Forktail damselflies, but instead found a much larger critter. The Common Green Darners were flying around the ponds. I even got to see a few tandem pairs. They were flying around before the cold spell hit us two weeks ago, but I never got to see them. They are typically the first dragonfly of the year. This is because they are one of the few that migrate. I didn’t get any pictures, but I will leave you with this one from last year.

    Very cool and how great to have seen the Eastern Forktailes also! It is about time spring has arrived! Next thing you know is many more species will be heading our way! Hey, you coming to the RTPI dragonfly workshop?
