It has been a bad year for dragonflies at my usual haunts.
The park did some maintenance in the wildlife restricted area I think to cut down on ticks. What that did was made for no wildlife. They mowed down plants and I suspect used a herbicide.
I went to another park to find the Odonata.
They are a lot less accessible and harder to photograph, but I managed to get a few.
I hope I identified them properly because there are just too many of them.
Yes, there were birds around, but they were not my quarry of the day.
