Blue-ringed Dancer

The Blue-ringed Dancer (Argia sedula) is the least common of the blue dancers in our area. Although I noted them along the Rouge River some years ago, I did not encounter them again until yesterday, when I obtained the necessary first voucher specimen to put them officially on the Wayne County list. I think they are the most beautiful of Michigan's Argias; this photo hardly does them justice.
