Dragonfly Days 2004

Here are some pictures from Dragonfly Days 2004 centered in Weslaco, Texas, and hosted and wonderfully produced
by the Valley Nature Center. If you were there and want them, feel free to right click on and download any pics you want. If you
would like copies of the "portraits" larger than what i have posted here, let me know and we'll work something out via email or CD.

The surprise Blue-faced Darner (Coryphaeschna adnexa) from Saturday the 15th at the Frontera Audubon Society site.

The less surprising (but only because it had been seen a few days previously), but possibly rarer Tawny Pennant (Brachymesia herbida), seen on the 16th at the World Birding Center in Edinburg. Sorry about the distant picture.

Milling around the Estero Llano Grande, Hidalgo County on 15 May 2004. Among other species present were Four-spotted Pennant,
Band-winged Dragonlet, Spot-winged Glider and Great Pondhawk.

Scenes from Anzalduas County Park, Hidalgo County on 16 May 2004, Bob Behrstock in charge. Critters included
Sulphur-tipped Clubtail, Russet-tipped Clubtail, Needham's Skimmer, and Smoky Rubyspot.

The Sulphur-tipped Clubtail Round Table

Many of, but not quite the whole, group at Anzalduas on 16 May 2004.

Some miscellaneous bugs:

Horsefly (Tabanus sp.), and a BIG one, at Golden Raintree Gardens, Weslaco.

Crimson (Janais) Patch (Chlosyne janais) caterpillar at Frontera, Weslaco.
