Scientific breakthrough

Photo Album: 

Marjori Hughes of Winnipeg used a microscope to examine the exuviae found along the banks of the Rainy River in Emo on in order to identify the type of dragonfly it belonged to. The fifth-annual Great Lakes Odonata conference turned out to be almost everything the organizers had hoped for, according to the Rainy River Valley Field Naturalists, which hosted the four-day event.

Thirty-three people, including some from as far away as Wisconsin and southern Ontario, attended seminars and went out in the fields and boreal bogs collecting and identifying dragonflies and damselflies in hopes of finding at least one new species, and they were not disappointed. –Michael Hilborn photo
