And the heat goes on…

One hot day after another- quite incredible! Jan Shields has been observing numerous Ruddy Darters basking in the sun’s rays at Venus Pool and sent in this fabulous shot of a mating pair. The photo below left also shows a male with solid black legs distinguishing him from Common Darters with a yellow stripe running down the legs. Jan also recorded this Emperor (below right) who on closer inspection is showing several signs of wear and tear!

At the end of June, Jan was lucky enough to see not five, but at least six Golden Ringed Dragonflies at Carding Mill Valley!
