Here's the species list for our trip, showing damselflies and dragonflies:
Common Green Darner
It was fun getting to see the Plateau Dragonlet again, especially since this is the only location we've seen it so far.
We were also pleased to see the Amethyst Dancer, Giant Darner, Gray Sanddragon, Twelve-spotted Skimmer, and Black Saddlebags – all first sightings for the year.
Here are a few pictures from our day at the Tortilla Flat:
