I photographed 45 species of odonata last year as part of my learning
experience which continues =F0=9F=A4=94.
Here are 4 photos of 3 species from March 18 and 21 this year-

The first I ID'd at FENCE, Polk County, on 3.18/20 as a adult female
Fragile Forktail.

The second and third I ID'd at Holston Creek Park (about 8 miles south of
FENCE), Spartanburg County, on 3.21/20 first as a Furtive Forktail
because *Dragonflies
a& Damselflies of Georgia and the Southeast *lists Eastern Forktail as not
occurring until late May, but https://urldefense.com/v3/__http://www.dpr.nc=
parks.gov/odes__;!!OToaGQ!4ZkRPzBCaeSichJDKeUyLh5-puF7EBP5jUcQ3dg_-BqPq4Lbk=
VxGDfI09VXgTXN5UoM$ shows it
occurring now, so I identify it as a female Eastern Forktail. It was
oviposting.

The fourth photo I've ID'd as an immature male Eastern Pondhawk which be a
early record for NC by 3 days if it occurred 8 miles further north in NC.
It's has hit 80 degrees F the past three days here, perhaps why it emerged
so early. I was lucky to get a photo of it flying.

Later I will see if I can upload photos to the
https://urldefense.com/v3/__http://www.dpr.ncparks.gov/odes__;!!OToaGQ!4ZkR=
PzBCaeSichJDKeUyLh5-puF7EBP5jUcQ3dg_-BqPq4LbkVxGDfI09VXgTXN5UoM$ site, but=
wonder- *does that site want my
SC photos or just the NC ones? *

Here's the URL for the above photos-
