CAMN Entomology and Herpetology Day 2016-03-12

Yesterday was a training day for the Capital Area Master Naturalist 2016 class that I'm attending. We spent the morning listening to great lectures by Alex Wild and Andy Gluesenkamp about entomology and herpetology. Then we spent the afternoon on The Nature Conservancy's Barton Creek Habitat Preserve in southwest Austin. Attached are observations from there.

This is probably not an identifiable image, but it was the best I could get of a constantly flying dragonfly. Recently there have been photos of this species taken in Travis county by others, so Dot-winged Baskettail is my best guess.
