I thought this was a female widow skimmer, but there is no yellow on the body, so I'm stumped. A view of the wings of this same dragonfly is here:
I also found a great dragonfly identification site:
The different types of dragonflies is staggering if you think too hard about it.
Thank you so much for all that stopped by to enjoy Johnny's puddle jumping fun. That post meant a lot to me from a very mom perspective I know.
It's pouring as I post with some rumbles of thunder and one of my dogs, Buddy, is shut in my office with me all a panic. All the storms this week are really stressing many of our companion animals and their humans.
On anther note, every grackle on the planet seems to have found our neighborhood this week. I am sooo hoping they will move on soon. All my regular bird friends and I are frustrated.
I'm ready for cooler temps and even more so less humidity, but that means all too soon shots like this will be gone until next year, so I thought maybe one more dragonfly shot was in order. Now, if I can just catch the Green Emerald in all it's glory too.
