A place for my notes on the Dragonflies and Damselflies in Michigan, as well as tips on collecting, observing and anything else that is even remotely related...

Great Blue Skimmer
A few days ago Mike Kielb e-mailed me that he'd seen Libellula vibrans at Park Lyndon North in NW Washtenaw County, but was unable to catch it. Today, I was checking my e-mail and found a message from Phil Myers with several photos of dragonflies that he needed indentified. BAM! Photo number two was that of a female L. vibrans from near Mill Lake, near Chelsea. The fact that the individual photographed is recently emerged and not flight-worn in appearance indicates that there is a breeding population here. Now, to catch a voucher specimen!
