Seldom seen, these medium-large Dragonflies of the western borderlands are neither particularly rare nor can they be called common. In my experience, they tilt strongly toward the former. They favor high desert environments where mornings and evenings, they actively patrol clear, fast-flowing streams and less often, the banks of associated lakes. As the photo suggests, they customarily avoid the heat of the day by hanging quietly in dense streamside foliage.
