The Dragonflies are Back!

The dragonflies are back, buzzing and flitting across ponds and perching on rushes. This one is a Neon Skimmer, Libellula croceipennis. Much thanks to Kathy Biggs for the ID. I stared back and forth between a flame skimmer and a neon skimmer and finally figured out there is a difference in the window markings on the tip of their wings. I know, I know, get a life, right? In any case, there were a lot of thse little guys and they were putting on quite a show as they darted around and cavorted with each other.
