What eyes!

In mid-August, I wrote about seeing my first Western Pondhawk (Erythemis collocata) on Bodega Head.  (I took a distant photo of a female on 15 August 2015.)  A few weeks later, I returned to the same spot and photographed this male.

What amazing eyes!

Here's the entire dragonfly:

And a view from the side:

It'll be interesting to see if the sightings this year (including at least one ovipositing female) result in emerging individuals at this wetland next year.
