Location Details

Location Riverside County, California, United States
Location Notes 5.5 acre suburban “ranch” in Riverside, CA. There is a small pond onsite, but the only time this dragonfly was ever seen, it was in a weedy vegetable garden. Otherwise, property has been under partial restoration to native plants for the past decade, but also has native and non-native trees and shrubs. Sage scrub would be its natural condition.
