July 9, 2013: Eastern Pondhawk

Eastern Pondhawks (1.7 inches) are voracious predators, sometimes capturing other dragonflies, even their own species.  They are also one of the few skimmers that habitually chooses to perch on the ground.  Flight Season: May through October.  These Eastern Pondhawks were found at Jensen Pond. The female is mostly green with some black markings (left), while the male is blue  with a green face and eyes (right). 6/26/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
