Dragonfly hunting on 7/10/2019

Locations: Pond Road and LaPlatte Nature Park, Shelburne VT
Time: 7/10/19 09:00 - 13:00
Weather: Sunny, no wind, high 85F

In search of the elusive Ophiogomphus genus (Snaketails) on 7/10/19. Though there were no Ophiogomphids seen, we had many great consolation prizes, including the Prince Baskettail, Black-shouldered Spinyleg, and several tiger beetles. Turns out that the LaPlatte River downstream of Shelburne Falls, though perfect habitat for Rusty Snaketails, did not have any activity. No exuviae found.
