Five fearless dragon hunters took part in the dragonfly field trip on June 10 at Ahwahnee Hills Regional Park. The morning started out cool but after an hour the sun came out and it warmed up enough for dragons to begin flying. We saw a total of 14 species including great looks and photo ops of perched individuals. If you couldn’t join us you missed a fun morning. Hopefully you can make it next summer.
