280 days of Urbpandemonium #127

New England's biggest dragonfly is also one of the most common. This female green darner Anax junius* rested briefly in our yard--later we went to the beach and we saw many of them flying around the shore. They are famously migratory, hunting as they go, covering 30 miles a day. Because the ones that appear in spring have little to no wing damage, it is thought that each year a new crop migrates each year. Slightly more battered darners head south when insects become scarce in the fall.
