The last few weeks I have been checking out one of my favorite dragon spots to see if there were any around. Walking up a narrow clearing, about 50 feet wide by a wooded vernal pool, I saw one on patrol.
Eventually it landed low in the bramble, just long enough for me to get some shots off.
I’m not familiar with this bug, but in this day and age, I can shoot first and ask questions later.
After all, how difficult could it be to find, look at those wind spots! What I had envisioned to be an easy session with the field guide did turn out to be a bit of a challenge. You see, the picture in the book was in different lighting and a different angle. Note that the spots disappear from a different angle. However I did get a positive I.D. This is a Spot-winged Glider.
