The odonates of Emma Jones Natural Preserve in Hillsboro, OR (08/04/10, part1)

Over the last week or so, I’ve been exploring the odonates at Emma Jones as the birding is very slow this time of the year. I’m quite a rookie with damsel and dragon flies, so I wouldn’t fully rely on the identifications made below. Here some samples …

Common Whitetail

Eight-spotted Skimmer

Widow Skimmer

Twelve-spotted Skimmer

This could be a Northern Spreadwing, but I’m not sure. Definitely a spreadwing which is actually a damsel fly.

And finally, a mating pair of Tule Bluet, another damsel fly.
