[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this clamp-tipped emerald(Somatochlora tenebrosa) 'hanging around' in a poplar tree earlier today. Likely an immature male whose eyes have yet to turn that telltale iridescent green hue. The abdomen is dark with a very unique cerci and epiprocts which form a broad circular enclosure and for which this species is named for.
