The first ode (dragonfly/damselfly) of the season was seen on February 24 flying low over the Wetlands. While I didn’t see it well enough to positively identify it, I’m confident that it was a Common Green Darner (Anax Junius). On March 1st I did see one close enough to make a positive ID.
The first damselfly was seen on March 7, but again I could not see enough detail to make out the species. However, I’m fairly sure that it was a Fragile Forktail (Ischnura posita). Fragile Forktails are one of the earliest of damsels to emerge.
More to come.
