Nice account with some great photos. I remember when I was there some years back Booted Eagles seemed the most common raptor. The photo captioned male Copper Demoiselle isn't a demoiselle at all. Looks like a Willow Emerald to me.

OOPS sorry Conehead54 is correct the photo captioned male Copper Demoiselle is a Willow Emerald damselfly but the female is indeed a Copper Demoiselle. I've given myself a slapped wrist for that one !!!
