Description:

Not one of my better photos but it's the only one I got! Red-veined darters have been reported at this site in the last week and looking for them was the main purpose of my visit but there were plenty of Common darters on the wing too. Despite being horribly out of focus I think from this (severe) crop you can see the red veining (in the right side wings) which I believe is diagnostic of this species.
