An Eastern Pondhawk
|July 31, 2011|
|One of the advantages of the web is the ability to identify what would have been next to impossible for me (that is, a green dragonfly). Thus here we have an eastern pondhawk (Erythemis simplicicollis), a modest-size dragonfly with a robust appetite.|
|The female is the green pondhawk; the male eastern pondhawk is light blue.|
Pondhawks are voracious pest hunters, which makes them a great dragonfly to have around.
Photo note: Both photos were taken in the Toftrees game land on July 15, 2011. The first with the Pentax K20D and the Pentax SMC-DA 55-300mm lens and the second with the same camera and the Voigtlander 125mm macro lens.
