DSA Update No. 5 – Two Groups

by Bryan on June 29th, 2010

As it turns out, rather than join the post-meeting excursion to Jackman, Maine, I returned to Vermont on Monday. But I’ll post news from Jackman as soon as those folks emerge from the bogs. Rumor has it that Jerrell Daigle caught a female Somatochlora brevecincta (Quebec Emerald), which is quite rare out here. In the meantime, here are two group shots. I suspect some of you may be sick of seeing images of Ophiogomphus (Snaketail) species, those shocking green dragonflies that race up and down rivers. But we netted all six target species during the meeting. Click on Ed Lam‘s flat-bed scan for a closer view. And if you’ve ever wondered about the Dragonfly Society of the Americas, here are about 85 of us after our cookout and before catching Neurocordulia yamaskanensis (Stygian Shadowdragon) and N. obsoleta (Umber Shadowdragon) after dusk. By the way, I learned that night that Jim Johnson, the guy lying on the ground to the right (that’s me on the left) nets Neurocordulia with impeccable skill and agility, like a flycatcher on flies.

  1. 85 must be a record # of attendees! And you can never show too many Ode photos! ;-) Thanks for the large group photo! Wonderful to see so many Ode Friends!
