  3. I was always mistaking broad bodied chasers for black tailed skimmers last year...much plummier, a buzzing black grape of a dragon

  6. Lovely photos and rather nice to see both male and female of each species. The mating demoiselles were a bonus! :-)

  7. Hey Roy...I love seeing the beautiful colors, and delicate looking,but strong wings they have.

    I have not seen many of these or butterflies spices yet this year. Being near the pond I would think I would see more,but maybe it is just to early!!
