Can you see why this group of dragonflies are called clubtails? This is one of the rarer species, confined to a small portion of the Southern Appalachians. It's called a Cherokee Clubtail. We have a healthy population of them at the home park, and work hard to maintain their habitat.

Will end with a few other non-odonate "bug" snapshots. These hot late spring and early summer days are perfect for Tiger Beetles. They're fast-moving and voracious predators, and quite pretty too!

And speaking of pretty, look at pretty Mrs. Dobsonfly! She spent most of her life in a cool stream, also as a voracious predator. But after hatching into her winged adulthood, she won't eat anything!
