As I was reminiscing about the annual mass emergence of Cobra Clubtail dragonflies (Gomphurus vastus) along the Potomac River at Riverbend Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA, I realized there are lots of photos shot in May 2017 that were never edited.

This photo set features a female perching on colorful kayaks in a storage rack near the boat ramp. Both photos are uncropped, that is, they are full-size images (4,000 x 3,000 pixels).

    Walter, I do the annual bird breeding survey for Riverbend. It was quite a show on a few days watching the Cobra Clubtails emerge… I saw a dragonfly today at Sunset Hills wetlands, Reston, Va. I will try and fiqure out how to email or post a photo for you to ID.
