California Spreadwing

I’ve been looking for the late-flying California Spreadwing, but it took David to find and photograph one for me. Usually spreadwings, especially immatures like this one, are very hard to identify. This damselfly can be told by its large size and bulbous abdomen end. This creature was perched in cattails in a small urban park in Olympia on 6 July 2019. The species is found from northern Washington south to Baja California and Sonora.
