Twelve-spotted Skimmer
Libellulla pulchella male 2 inches

Large, aggressive and very territorial, he likes lakes, ponds and sluggish backwaters. The female is similar but lacks the white patches!

Over the top quality and colors! In case you didn't know it yet, Jenn, I'm a hobby naturalist and dragonflies are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. I have a nice collection, but this photo is the BEST!

Wonderful high quality and when he is motoring those dark sections look like bands just as barred props look on an aircraft. Outstanding! TG

I haven't been able to visit the site much and see your work recently, but you seem to have moved to another level. The macro renderings are especially wonderful. Smile
