Dragonfly Rescuers Downstream

This sharp looking jewelwing and his partner (or rival) were nearly spider-lunch - however, I decided to intervene on account that anything that eats things that bite me deserves to live and while the spider would eat the mosquitos too - hunger might make him try harder and build more webs. I just don't think I wanted to seemt them struggle and die. I've watched a spider take and wrap a fly.. its facinating, but not what I was in the mood for today.

Today was a survey day, so I spent most of it in a pleasantly semi-shaded woodland near a most spiffy looking stream. Not bad - and the equipment didn't throw us any curve balls that we couldn't sort out. Not too bad...
