Scooped from a bog hole with a dip net duing a 'blind sweep'. I placed it in a clear plastic cup for the dorsal view. In the dorsal view it was completely submerged in water. I then took it out of the water for a side view. It didn't do well out of the water because it is a naiad and they can only breath underwater. The term "naiad" refers to the immaure form of dragonflies and mayflies. This is a dragonfly naiad.
