Today while I was searching for orchids in the lee of the Horseshoe Bay dunes at Pukaskwa N.P. (48.59249, -86.29847), I again encountered mostly-red saddlebags on the wing...awesome! Even better, I had a net at hand and two individuals were low and slow.
I know very little about these exotic skimmers. I have tentatively ID'd them as Red Saddlebags (Tramea onusta), a new species to the Thunder Bay District...but I could be mistaken.
