Super slow week this week!  Still waiting for that big late summer/fall surge to occur, but I’m becoming less convinced it’s going to happen this year…

And with that, this week’s very short report is finished.  Have a great week!


Have you seen a dragonfly swarm? I am tracking swarms so I can learn more about this interesting behavior.  If you see one, I’d love to hear from you!  Please visit my Report a Dragonfly Swarm page to fill out the official report form.  It only takes a few minutes! Thanks!
