The following gallery shows several young dragon hunters getting some hands-on field experience during a summer vacation day camp for children at Huntley Meadows Park. Their mission: Collect, identify, and release dragonflies from the wetland area. The young man wearing a blue shirt is shown holding a male Blue Dasher dragonfly (Pachydiplax longipennis).

Hey kids, please don’t try this yourself — collecting specimens for observation is not allowed at Huntley Meadows Park!
