Artist's Description

An immature Dot-Tailed Whiteface (Leucorrhinia intacta) clings to a blade of grass during a cool late-spring day. After a morning rain, a dampness hung in the air, and the chilly temperatures were not very conducive to dragonfly flight. Nevertheless, many nymphs had climbed stems of grass, and dragonflies emerged from their discarded shells with abundance, stretching their gossamer wings for the first time. Like flags, the large insects clung to blades of grass all around the marsh.
