Lance-tipped Darner, new for Kouchibouguac National Park in 2009! - Aeshna constricta - Male
Callendars Beach salt marsh, Kent County, New Brunswick, Canada
August 1, 2009
New for the park, bringing total to 55 spp. Caught in a massive swarm of darners and emeralds, including many Variable Darners, several Canada Darners and many Incurvate Emeralds...thousands of odes were feeding, likely a few more species present!

Of the 37 odes caught, one was eating a 7-spot lady beetle, one a click beetle, one a large tabanid and another one was eating a harlequin bug!
