Aeshna umbrosa (Shadow Darner)A fairly wide distribution, found at bogs, ponds and in nearby openings. Can be abundant at certain sites and does indeed fly in shadows more than its congeners, sometimes in sizeable swarms. With its long flight period, an Aeshna netted in late fall is most likely to be this species. Among the Aeshna this seems the most likely to find its way indoors.
