this place, near the shores of Adams Lake. We didn't tarry to look around the prairie in the morning, as we were itching to hit some other spots. When we returned in mid-afternoon, some of us took a stroll up the path past this sign to see if the shooting-stars, Dodecatheon meadia, were in bloom.
favorite dragonfly book upon my return.
Common baskettails are members of the Corduliidae, or emerald family. They aren't as showy as some of their brilliantly green-eyed brethren, but what baskettails lack in looks, they make up for with superb aerial prowess. It was fun to watch them effortlessly patrolling on shimmering wings, and making jags at lightning speed to snap up lesser flying insects.
Ohio Odonata Society, illustrates that common baskettails are well distributed across Ohio. If you like dragonflies, consider joining the OOS - it'll cost you all of $5.00 a year! If you feel exceptionally generous, enlist as a supporting member. That'll set you back $10 bucks!
