Wordless Wednesday: Widow Skimmer Dragonfly

Widow Skimmer

Almost wordless: While out monitoring birds in the prairie last week this large, beautiful dragonfly landed right in front of me. His wings were a shimmery gold and silver in the morning sun. I looked him up in the bug guide and determined that this is a juvenile male.

    Great shot. We saw blue dragonflies on the coast earlier in the week. I haven’t spotted this variety, maybe native where you are 🙂
