ENV: Some daily bugs

I was down at the crossing today, taking pictures of the kids in fishing class, and catching and showing them some bugs. Nothing incredible today, but the low numbers (1) of Comanche Dancer continues to worry me. I also had the first Completely dark Smoky Rubyspots (Hetaerina titia) of the year here (picture below).

30 American Rubyspot, Hetaerina americana
16 Smoky Rubyspot, Hetaerina titia
2 Stream Bluet, Enallagma exsulans
2 Neotropical Bluet, Enallagma novaehispaniae
1 Citrine Forktail, Ischnura hastata
10 Kiowa Dancer, Argia immunda
8 Blue-ringed Dancer, Argia sedula
1 Comanche Dancer, Argia barretti
1 Dusky Dancer, Argia translata
15 Powdered Dancer, Argia moesta
1 Aztec Dancer, Argia nahuana

1 Swift Setwing, Dythemis velox
1 Flame Skimmer, Libellula saturata

dozens of Anisops at dusk -- perhaps Wandering Gliders

1 Sleepy Orange
1 Cloudless Sulphur
1 Question Mark
1 Julia Heliconian
