Ischnura cervula

As you might know, I’m really into photographing dragonflies. So, after landing to San Francisco, I had to take the train to the Golden Gate Park yesterday. I grossly underestimated the size of the park based on reading the map so it took a while to actually get to a lake but once I did, I did manage to spot a dragonfly. Back at the hotel I identified it to be the Pacific Forktail and sent email to people managing the California Dragonfly sightings page. Turns out this was the first finding of the species in California this year so I’m a happy camper now. :)
