Bohemia Ecological Preserve

The many Darner Dragonflies in the genus Aeshna are called Mosaic Darners. This photo is probably a female Blue-eyed Darner. The Mosaic Darners are a challenge to ID in the field due to their varying color forms and patterns - particularly the females who have a totally different color pattern than the males.
