      Warm Springs and Blue River, Gila Co., AZ

      1 - 3:30 PM

      65 F, sunny, clear, calm/light breeze



      We visited two spots on the San Carlos Indian Reservation, Gila Co., AZ.
      (NOTE: a recreation permit (purchased at Bashas', San Carlos) is
      required to access these locations.)



      The best observations were of

      (1) KIOWA DANCERS, with 100+ individuals, including many pairs in tandem
      and some ovipositing, along a short stretch of stream (there were
      probably many more downstream) at Warm Springs;



      (2) TARASCAN DANCERS, A. tarascana along the Blue River.



      Both records provide new late flying date for Arizona. See
      http://azdragonfly.net <http://azdragonfly.net/> for information on
      locations (Location tab) and pictures (News tab).
