Sept 3, 2016: American Rubyspots

American Rubyspots (Hetaerina americana), a beautiful damselfly, have been unusually common the last few weeks.  There are two locations where I have found them: by the spillway and the NW corner of the north lake's west bay.  These photos are of a male. (Wolf. Oesterreich, 9/1/16)
Total Length = 38-46 mm
