Dragonflies and Damselflies

The Fleeting Dragonfly

I am noticing some other species of dragonflies that I haven’t seen before. However, trying to figure out which of the 130 species we have in Canada it is, is proving quite a challenge. I think this one is a female Green Darner.

Its friend was different and has some stripes. I think this one is a female Eastern Pondhawk.

I love the way this one looks like it is singing to me!

However, trying to figure out species has been rather difficult.

I think it is a blue dasher, but I really am not sure.

So I am just going to enjoy them,
