We got back yesterday from camping near Baldwin at Nichols Lake, in the western central LP. The birds were about what one would expect. I didn't see the Common Loons I've seen there before, but July 4th weekend boat traffic may have had something to do with that. Work kept me from getting up there last year and I was curious to see what the red dragonflies I remembered from past years were. I was mostly expecting meadowhawks; they turned out to be Calico Pennants, a species I don't see very often down here.
I ended up wading out and hunkering down in the water for those shots.
I pretty quickly noted a clubtail on the sand at the beach, the appropriately named Common Sanddragon.
I think this is an Emerald Spreadwing damselfly. You need really good hand lens to do these things justice and I didn't bother netting one to confirm the ID.
Finally a Variable Damselfly, a species I've seen but never gotten a decent pic of in Berrien.
