Fawn Darner

Boyeria vinosa


Large brown dragonfly about 2.5" in length, having two bright yellow spots on the sides of the thorax and smaller yellow spots along the abdomen.


Shaded streams, lakes, and rivers.


Found this male of the species behaving very oddly, he was barely moving and perched on the pot of a plant at my work. There is no body of water around my place of work so I am unsure of where he came from, he did move around I bit when poked.
