Vivid Dancer Damselflies

August 16, 2015

The Vivid Dancer is probably the most common damselfly in the Santa Monica Mountains, and at the moment they are abundant in the GNG.  Even though they will ultimately lay their eggs in the upper pond (the lower pond does not have the ecosystem to support their nymphs), they can be found courting in every corner of the garden.
