Like most clubtails the horned clubtail emerges fairly early in the summer, usually in June, and they are usually gone before the end of July. I photographed these horned clubs at the beginning of June at the Purgatory Creek wetlands. Unlike other clubtails though, the horned clubtail is not usually found near rivers. This clubtail likes slow moving marshy streams, bogs and ponds. They are often found perched on lily pads, moss beds or other vegetation as you can see above.
