On my dragonfly quest, I found this guy. It seems I don't have to go far from home to find dragonflies. He landed on the steps by my house. He was a tough one to identify. I got my ODNR dragonfly guide and searched and searched. It wasn't until I read the various descriptions that I found a clue. The Eastern Pondhawk is blue--but it hatches out green and changes to--starting on the abdomen (tail.) That is what I have, here. I searched on the internet and found pictures of them at this stage. The next day, I saw a completely blue one out in the park, and this morning, I saw a completely green one on the outside wall of my house. What confuses me is, why are they by my house? There are no ponds, here.
