Riverine Clubtail
Stylurus amnicola
The Riverine Clubtail (Stylurus amnicola) is found across much of the eastern United States but it can be fairly rare and local in its distribution. The very young female shown here had probably just recently emerged. It was photographed along the Wapsipinicon River in Black Hawk Co., Iowa in July 2004 with a Canon EOS 1D Mark II and EF 300 mm F/4 L IS lens with a 2X extender and 550 EX flash.
