I'd wondered vaguely at times which dragonfly is on the cover of the book. I'd been seeing an orange dragonfly at the Harbor Shores marsh that I was thinking was a young meadowhawk of some large species before I saw a couple tandemed up and ovipositing. It took 2 trips to get a decent shot of what turns out to be Wandering Glider, the cover model for the Paulson book.
Last week I netted another clubtail, this one is a female Cobra Clubtail.
Powdered Dancer is very common at water's edge, the males dangle upward in the air while the females oviposit. A lot of the damselflies do this, but this species seems to adopt this posture very commonly.
I'd like to say I have some prospect of a decent bird post on the horizon, but who knows, maybe low expectations will actually be helpful.
