Cambridge Things

Last Thursday I went to Cambridge in search of the reported Yellow-crowned Night-Heron. I struck out on the heron, but I was entertained by the insects, especially the dragonflies. I actually managed to find three species of dragonfly I had never seen before. There were no doubt more species, but I didn't bring my net!

Black-tipped Darner

Lance-tipped Darner

Williamson's Emerald

Ebony Jewelwings were very numerous.

There were a few American Rubyspots along the river.

There was a single Slender Spreadwing, and a single Shadow Darner.

A couple butterflies and moths.

Wild Indigo Duskywing

Gypsy Moth

No heron, but still a productive outing!
