Hunting the damsel

Published August 3, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

I had been frustrated in recent weeks by my failure to photograph a dragonfly in the back yard garden. Then I took a hike in the Anacortes Community Forest Lands. Wow! MANY beautiful damselflies, which are closely related to the larger dragonfly (Thanks to reader Charles Cossel for pointing out the difference to me). Amazing little creatures. See more photos “In the News.”

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
