      Greetings,

      Had Ann Johnson and Jim Bangma drop by today and look for bugs. I always enjoy when bug people swing by to visit and chat. Way cool! Well anyways, below is their list of what they saw including two definite new species for us and possibly a third.

      Flame Skimmer
      Neon Skimmer
      *Orange-bellied Skimmer or Roseate Skimmer
      Red Rock-skimmer
      Blue Dasher
      *Western Pondhawk
      Black Saddlebags
      Mexican Amberwing
      Spot-winged Glider
      Wandering Glider
      Pale-faced Club Skimmer
      Straw-colored Sylph
      *Gray Sanddragon
      Blue-eyed Darner
      Giant Darner
      Common Green Darner
      Sooty Dancer
      Arroyo Bluet
      Desert Forktail
      Desert Firetail

      * new species for our checklist. They were unsure about the Roseate vs. Orange-bellied. Our Dragonfly Walk for Saturday has potential to be pretty exciting!
