Sable strong

A few days after my first spotting of Sable Clubtail dragonflies (Stenogomphurus rogersi) at a small forested stream located in Fairfax County, Virginia USA, I was happy to see several Sable during a return trip to the same place.

The following individual is a male, as indicated by his “indented” hind wings and terminal appendages.

12 JUN 2018 | Fairfax County, VA | Sable Clubtail (male)

The male was perched in a small, sunny clearing alongside the stream during mid-morning. As direct sunlight shifted toward the stream, several males started perching on vegetation overhanging the creek, about a foot-or-two above the water.
