Yellow Dragonfly - Phanogomphus kurilis - Female
Eugene, Lane County, Oregon, USA
May 29, 2018
I saw this dragonfly heading straight towards me, and it flew right into my sweep net. It was rather breezy and overcast outside, so I was surprised it was flying at all. I placed it on my finger, and it stayed there for 25 minutes before I decided it was time to leave. During the 25 minutes, it seemed fairly happy with the warmth of my hand, and the fact that I was shielding it from the wind. Quite an enjoyable experience.
