Late this afternoon (about five) I finally made some time to photograph the odes in our yard. I spent only about twenty minutes with camera in hand. The temperature was about 70 deg. F and the weather clear.
Roughly two weeks ago, I noticed a few Hudsonian Whitefaces in the yard. These are always first dragonflies to appear each spring. The second species to appear are the Chalk-fronted Corporals.
This afternoon the Chalk-fronted Corporals were most common. I saw probably a dozen or so. I only observed one or two Hudsonian Whitefaces.
