Fifteen people joined me on this field trip to see the Downy Emerald. Most attendees had never see this species before, so it was a very exciting time. We visited 3 ponds and saw ~50 adults including 1 pair mating. The other usual species were present too, including the first Southern Hawker of the year. I borrowed Steve Cham's 300mm f4 lens to capture these in-flight photos, and the picturie of Steve photographing us. The weather was excellent and so were the dragonflies.
