Thanks for the kind words, "acreamoth99." I'll enter the featured photo in the annual photo contest sponsored by Huntley Meadows Park. Stay tuned -- I'll let you know whether I win first place!

Thanks for solving a long-standing mystery, James! My sincere apology for not replying sooner -- the automated notification of your species ID drowned in a flood of e-mails. Your help is appreciated nonetheless!

This individual is a male, as indicated by its terminal appendages and the shape of its hind wings. Congratulations for adding a new species to the official list species list for Dragonflies and Damselflies of Huntley Meadows Park! http://www.friendsofhuntleymeadows.org/S...

Congratulations, Mike! As far as I know, no one has spotted a Blue Corporal dragonfly at HMP anywhere other than the "way back" during the past two- to three years. Good to see one perching on the boardwalk!

Neil's ID was verified by PN spotter "kcurtain" (via private communication). Thanks for your help, "k!"

Thanks, Malcolm! I'm thinking about taking a hiatus from Project Noah in order to explore iNaturalist, hence my recent questions re: exporting CSV files from PN. I need to experiment with iNaturalist further, but it seems to have some features I'd like to see in PN, such as the ability to interrelate spottings by creating "Guides." This is the sort of thing I had in mind when I asked (in the Project Noah Facebook group), "Is that all there is?" "Spot, post, repeat" is becoming a bit of a grind after 700 spottings -- feeling like I'm ready to move to the next level but I may have hit the ceiling at PN! Your thoughts?
