2020 Vermont Venture: Catch a butterfly or dragonfly with a net

i'm not in favor of catching animals that i don't know how to handle safely. fortunately, i went to an interpretive program (was it last summer? the year before? all the days are running together now) at Little River State Park and Brian taught us how to safely net and handle dragonflies and damselflies.

i caught this beauty up at gillet pond while i was collecting sedge samples for study.

it is a slaty skimmer, Libellula incesta.
