NE DSA DE Fine-lined Emerald - Somatochlora filosa - Female
Abbott's Mill Nature Center, Sussex County, Delaware, USA
July 16, 2011
The 2011 northeast regional meeting of DSA had its end-of-meeting cookout at Abbott's Mill Nature Center. While we all sat around eating hot dogs and burgers, someone noticed an Emerald-looking dragonfly patrolling over the adjacent lawn. Richard Orr was the first one to start swinging his net, at least half a dozen others eventually joined him, and Rick Cheicante finally caught the bugger!
