Large, dark brown with blue eyes. Compare with Regal and Cyrano Darners. Eastern North America, common in south. Somewhat migratory, esp. along Atlantic coast. Shaded ponds, streams, swamps, temporary ponds. February to November in Florida, June to September in northernmost part of range. Predatory. May form swarms to feed on swarms of winged termites and ants. Often feeds very high. Females oviposit in a variety of sites, in mud, in stems, or in mud of dried-up ponds.
