When I arrived at the house, my husband asked if I had found the dragonfly I was looking for. I told him, "no, I should have just stayed home." Actually, I wasn't really looking for anything specific, just interesting species. A lifer would have been great. Anything uncommon would have been good. Downloading my pictures, I was amazed that I had photographed a Serpent Ringtail. It was the only ringtail I had managed to get a photo of, and I just assumed it would turn out to be an Eastern.
And it was pleasant to see an abundance of Filigree Skimmers, Giant Darners, and Viceroy Butterflies.
Additionally, this is the best photo I've taken of mating Lavender Dancers.
So, I'm glad I went, just wish I hadn't been too exhausted to enjoy it more. Now for a long nap.
