Hello, fishbio (I couldn't find or don't know how to find your name).

Princeton University Press is publishing my field guide to western Odonata in May. I am now working on a companion field guide to eastern Odonata, and I'm looking for photos for it. One I lack is a female Zigzag Darner, Aeshna sitchensis. Your photo here of a blue female on a rock is great, and I would like to use it in my book if possible. If this would be possible, could you please contact me at Many thanks.
