Some UFOs (unidentified flying odonates) were spotted up in Portland...These pics are from Ken Shiroishi who has a copy of Dragonflies and Damselflies of the Willamette Valley, but still could not put a name to this one.

"I see why this was difficult using our book as we don't cover most females. This is not an easy specimen as its a female and appears to be a bit teneral without mature colors. It appears to me to be a female Darner. I would guess that it is a female Blue-eyed Darner, Rhionaeschna multicolor, but thats mostly a guess! Lets get some other opinions."
