Dragon on Patrol

Wolf Read

Vancouver, Canada

Artist's Description

This male Canada Darner ( Aeshna canadensis ) actively patrolled a large section of pond, probably on the hunt for mates. He interacted with the Paddle-tailed Darners and Four-Spotted Skimmers in the area, swooping at them in what were apparently territorial challenges. Or, he thought them all to be potential mates.
