Day 175 Part 2 – Twelve-spotted Skimmer

While lazing on my patio this afternoon, I spotted what I have learned is a spotted skimmer, a male twelve-spotted skimmer to be exact (thank you, Google). I’ve been seeing these dragonflies all over this spring (I guess it’s now officially summer) and have never been able to capture one in focus until today. Of course this is cropped because this guy was perched far up in my neighbor’s ornamental pear tree atop a dead twig.

Focal Length 300mm
ISO 100

  1. What a cool dragonfly! I’ve never seen one like that, much less photographed one- nice capture! Love the wing pattern!
