Lebanon Hills Regional Park on 21 June 2016, we came upon this Racket-tailed Emerald along the edge of our trail. The eyes are an astounding shade of emerald. When not patrolling lakes, Racket-tailed Emeralds rest in forest openings. They hang in shrubs or perch on the ground. They often swarm around people, eating our “attendant” blackflies (Paulson).
