Blue-eyed Darner

We visited Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge on 13 July. We rustled up a bird-list of 24 species, but were disappointed to see little unexpected. An unfamiliar dragonfly, however, patrolled up and down our walking path. Often it hovered, making photographs possible. The eye color makes the name Blue-eyed Darner perfect for this species. This common West Coast dragonfly ranges east into the Midwest and north into Canada.
