Friday June 1st I walked the trial below the power lines on the south side of Rigaud Mountian called L’Escapade, dirctions later. The Rigaud region holds many interesting species of Odonata, including some that are scarce in Quebec. Below are a selection of photographs and here is a list of species seen:
Eastern Forktail, Green Darner, Springtime Darner, Horned Clubtail, Beaverpond Clubtail, Lancet Clubtail, Dusky Clubtail, Racket-tailed Emerald, Chalk-fronted Corporal, Widow Skimmer, Common Whitetail and Four-spotted Skimmer.
Nearby at the recharge ponds there were several Beaverpond Baskettails plus some of the above.
Both sites are situated on Chemin St-Henri at the west end. L’Escapade is after Sucarie St-Henri with limited parking on both sides of the road, the northern section held most insects. The recharge ponds are c1km further west, on the left before the T-junction. Ch. Henri is north of St-Clet and accessed off route 201.
If you think I messed up any of the IDs I’d be happy to hear from you.
