|Chris Leahy making a point|
We didn't actually need to snare anything to profit from an orientation tour with Chris. He recognized Wandering Gliders, the most global of all dragonflies, zooming around the periphery of a field at the Park entrance, moving through on their extended migration. He suggested that our 'cloud' had been composed of Common Green Darners, similarly massing for migration.
