Odolympics 2021-06

I was fortunate to be able to spend some time between June 19 and June 27, to participate in the Odolympics, a citizen science project to collect observations of Odonates (dragonflies and damselflies). Attached to this journal entry are all my iNat observations made during this period. The odonate observations are also officially part of checklists submitted to OdonoataCentral.org.

And here are some video highlights from Sunday afternoon, June 27, the last day:

This insect flew in and caught my eye, and I quickly realized it wasn't an odonate. It was an ant lion!
