Emergence! - Somatochlora kennedyi - Male
logging rd near New Scotland Bog, Westmorland County, New Brunswick, Canada
May 25, 2008
S kennedyi and S franklini were both emerging that day, along with Leucorrhinia hudsonica and Epitheca canis, but was only able to photograph kennedyi "in the act"...It was actually possible to ID the larva (soon to be exuvia) from the photo with a key, but other specimens were collected at the site and compared under the scope later in the season too.
