DRAGONFLIES AND DAMSELFLIES OF THE DARBY PLAIN
By Jan Kennedy
The dragonfly and damselfly expedition on a pleasant and breezy Saturday, July 26, 2014, was a resounding success. About two dozen people were present for the event. The trip leaders were Dr. Jim Davidson, Guy Denny, and Cheryl Harner. Everyone was mesmerized by the color, beauty, and diversity of these fascinating, flying insects. We immersed ourselves in the habitats in which they live. Wading in Big Darby Creek to get up-close views of the energetic odonates was a highlight of the day. Some of the dragons and damsels even posed long enough to have their portraits taken.
