1st multi-species day!

While out at lunch on May 20, I was happy to find multiple species in one location in Oakland County, Michigan.

During my lunch hour I was able to visit Lakeshore Park in Novi.
For species #1, a baskettail species (Epitheca sp.) was found patrolling one of the sunny trail straightaways.

Species #2 was a female Common Whitetail (Plathemis lydia) sunning herself at a trail crossroads.

The final and 3rd species was a Dot-tailed Whiteface (Leucorrhinia intacta). This was an upland grassy area. This individual was quite skittish and all I obtained was this poor photo.
