A couple weeks ago I headed out to Grant Narrows following up on some reports of a Great Egret. After getting some good views of the Egret from the northern viewing tower, I took a short walk down the Nature Trail. I was again impressed by the diversity of odonates. I was surprised to see any dragonflies flying in October let alone three species. After some reading I found my surprise was misplaced as several dragonflies in Southern BC fly well into October with the flight period of the Shadow Darner extending into early November.
