We thought we had already seen this image,
but now we can't find the earlier one. Did you delete it and resubmit it? No need to do that if you did. Any image text can be editted if needed and images can be moved wherever needed in the guide, so no need to resubmit. Besides, deleting images also deletes all the comments on them and breaks all the links made to the original photot. But maybe we just misremember, in which case, just disregard all this!

Faux Pas
I'm still learning the protocol. After posting the earlier photo I realized it was not a good addition to the Guide. So, when I added this better image I deleted the earlier submission, thinking that the issue had been resolved and that a better photo would be appreciated. You did not misremember, I just screwed up. Won't happen again.

I hope you concur that is is in fact a Springtime Darner and not a brown form female Blue-Eyed Darner.


Not a problem - we were just confused
and wanted to let you know some of the possibilities with this webpage. Won't stick our necks out on this one - we always leave the Aeshnidae to the big guys! We've been enjoying your images - thanks!
