There’s a couple of sites in Colbert County that found that are a photographers paradise if you like dragonflies. One is off of Second St on Pepi St in Muscle Shoals City just past the airport on the left. A few Great White Egrets are wading there, but are camera shy. It took me a couple of trips, but I finally managed to get a few pictures of them as well as many dragonflies.
The second are is a the Alloys Park off of River Road south of Muscle Shoals. It is near the Alabama birding site near Double Head Resort that several white pelicans are located.
A good area in Lauderdale County to see dragonflies is at McFarland Park in Florence. A few of these pictures are from there.
