The following photos show two females, as indicated by their coloration and terminal appendages.
Notice the natural variation in the coloration of the two females.
A single mature male was spotted near the location where the females were photographed.
Editor’s Note: This is the same location I described in “Ground truth,” posted on 02 March 2016. As I speculated in the post, by mid-July the banks of the stream were so choked with vegetation that I was unable to do more than work the edges of the thicket.
