I visited the marsh at Braham Tract today and walked north along the creek. I stopped to visit the beaver dam but the highlight was the many Odonates (dragonflies and damselflies) that I saw in the meadow near the creek. Using Ontario Nature’s online Odonate guide, I identified five species.
I hope you enjoy these photos (all are cropped – I was not able to get that close to the flighty insects).
I live locally and enjoy daily views of Cold Creek from my windows. I have a B.Sc. in Environmental Biology (McGill) and M.Sc. in Zooplankton and Limnology (University of Manitoba). I am passionate about the local area and its environment and organisms and joined the Lone Pine Land Trust Board in 2015.
