June 2008 - Blue-eyed Darner
Blue-eyed Darner - male
Blue-eyed Darner, Rhionaeschna multicolor
The Blue-eyed Darner is rarely observed perched, so it is a real treat when encountered. The females have colourful patterns like the males, but the stripes and spots are green or yellow instead of the blue color that the males have and give it its name. You may think you have seen a different species with the colours of the two being so different.
