The Whisperer Spoke!

Thanks to all who attended the Dragonfly Whisperer talk at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum on Saturday.  We had a great time, and we hope you did too!

After the talk we did a short dragonfly walk with Roger and Gale Racut.  We looked at a number of dragonflies and damselflies through a spotting scope, and had wonderful views of their colors, patterns, and wings.

Here's a list of the odonates we saw on Saturday, both at Ayer Lake and the Mini Oasis in the Demonstration Garden:

Familiar Bluet
Rambur's Forktail
Desert Firetail
Blue-ringed Dancer
Springwater Dancer

Blue-eyed Darner
Flame Skimmer
Mexican Amberwing
Blue Dasher

Also, during the talk I mentioned that I would post information about some of the field guides and cameras I use.  Here's a link to this information, from a talk I gave earlier this year:

Thanks again for attending and asking lots of great questions.

Happy Dragonflying
