Subject: IBET North Park Village Painted Skimmer Dragonflies
For those who chase more than birds, there were at least 3 Painted Skimmer Dragonflies at the North Park Village Nature Center. This is my first sighting of these since 2015. Interestingly, a female was observed laying eggs, which may mean that this uncommon dragonfly might become more usual. I saw them mostly at the east end of the boardwalk in the wetland area.
