Returning to the Dragonfly Festival

0

The 18th annual Dragonfly Festival at Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge is supported by the Friends of Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge as well as many departments and volunteers. Refuge tour guide Susan May, left, is carefully holding one of the fragile dragonflies she has caught and brought back to the Joseph R. Skeen Visitor Center. It took her several minutes to unhook the tiny claws clinging to the net before she could put it safely in a foldable cage. May used to live in Artesia before she moved to Midland, Texas. “I come back every year,” she said. “This year is my second year as a guide.” (Christina Stock Photo)
