Castle Lake, Siskiyou County
- Hi all,
The family and I were in Mount Shasta (city), yesterday, and decided to
have lunch at Castle Lake. The day was sunny and breezy and the lake was
loaded with people. Here's a list of the odes we saw:
Vivid Dancer - common where trail crosses outlet stream
Northern/Boreal Bluet - common along lake shore
Variable Darner - 1 identified as it landed on a bush in front of me (see
photographs: http://www.shasta.com/bruun/va_drnr/variable_darner.html), a
number of other Aeshna darners seen
Grappletail - common where trail crosses outlet stream (see photos:
were very tame. Steven netted one, picked another up by the wing, and
coaxed a third to crawl onto his finger.
American Emerald - Common. The 4 or 5 emeralds we identified were American.
