Aeshna canadensis (Canada Darner)One of Vermont’s most widely distributed Aeshna species, with the Southern Piedmont having the fewest records (perhaps owing to relatively little survey work in that region and a shortage of habitat). Common to fairly common at ponds, marshes, bogs and fens. One reliable way to net this species is to wait at water’s edge for a male to pass by on one of its routine shoreline patrols for females.
