A few hours later, a pair of Kiowa Dancer damselflies mated and then the female laid eggs on a leaf in the fastest flowing water the "stream" section has. As the wind blew, the area was sometimes in sun and sometimes in shade. Nearby, a Desert Firetail damselfly landed briefly on a pickerelweed leaf.
Other odonates at the water today included Blue Dashers, the Great Pondhawk, and Desert Firetails. Bird came down in abundance--Carolina wrens, mockingbirds, blue jays, white-winged doves, Inca doves, sparrows, buntings. Two or three kinds of wasps, honeybees, and flies (not just house-flies, either) were also visiting the water.
