May 28 , 2008

Bog Haunter Wednesday was Dragonfly Day at a fen in Washington County. There we encountered one of Vermon'ts rarest insects, Ebony Boghaunter (pictured to the right). This tiny dark dragonfly is known from only three sites in the state. We also found the following other dragonflies on the wing (with a few photo links):

Eastern Forktail
Dusky Clubtail
Beaverpond Clubtail
American Emerald
Four-spotted Skimmer
Chalk-fronted Corporal
Hudsonian Whiteface
Belted Whiteface

Other notable sightings included Canadian Tiger Swallowtail, Mustard White, Spring Azure and Brown Elfin.
