A group for discussing all things related to Odonata (Dragonflies and Damselflies) of New Brunswick and the wider region, including ID, Q and A, natural history, photography, etc.
As things are winding down for the season but folks are still engaged in learning about insects, I thought it would be fun and useful to continue to post pictures and info on the over 130 species of Odonata we have here in the Maritimes to the group discussion page here, just to keep our learning fresh and evolving over the fall, winter and early spring, along with our continuing Autumn Meadowhawk contest (!).
In that regard, I hope others feel free to participate in this as well and add some of their own stuff. I know we can learn plenty from each other, even over the months when there is nothing "new" to be seen. I will personally try to post a couple a week over the next six or seven months and I hope that will be enough to keep the ball rolling and I would be thrilled if others added their own similar-type posts to the mix, but I don"t *expect* it of anyone, so please feel free to participate or not. SO, all that said, here is the first in what I hope will be a long, interactive and enjoyable series:
