Lake larva - Aeshna eremita

Lake larva - Aeshna eremita
One of the lakes off of Mirror Lake Highway (route 150), Duchesne County, Utah, USA
July 19, 2016
During the post-meeting phase of the Dragonfly Society of the Americas annual meeting, I spent a day with Ken Lebo and Clay Corbin and we headed up into the Uinta Mountains on the Mirror Lake Highway. I'm not quite sure which lake it was that we wound up exploring, do not think it was Washington, but something near there. Clay spotted this very large dragonfly nymph; I captured it by hand. A few adult Lake Darners were patrolling the same stretch of lake edge, so I guessed that this larva was that species as well.
