The preceding photograph shows the sign located in situ on the day the park opened; the final version of the illustration for the sign is shown below.
One of my photos of a Swamp Darner dragonfly (Epiaeschna heros), taken during a photowalk at Huntley Meadows Park (HMP) on 02 June 2014, is featured on the sign. The dragonfly is a female, shown laying eggs (oviposition) in mud alongside a vernal pool.
The original photograph is shown below. Did you notice the version on the sign is the mirror image of my photo? I guess you call that “artistic license.”
