A new Endangered Beauty exhibit that runs from April 23 to June 5 at Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods reveals stunning photos of Illinois’ rarest species. A reception with refreshments will be held from 1 to 3 p.m., April 23, and award-winning photographer Carol Freeman will answer questions about her project and share information about the fascinating species she has photographed.

        Freeman spent three summers tracking down the federally and state-endangered Hine’s emerald dragonfly. “There’s only one little place where you can find this species in Illinois, and I was not about to walk off trail to find it,” she says.

        Instead, Freeman walked slowly or stood patiently on the only trail, hoping to glimpse the hovering wings of this rare and beautiful insect. One day, a Hine’s emerald landed on a cattail after catching a meal, affording her the chance to capture its beauty with her camera.

Admission is free. Location: 21950 Riverwoods Rd., Deerfield. For more information, call 847-404-8508 or visit TeamGreenWeb.org.
