I Need An ID

I stepped outside yesterday and spotted this interesting creature. I asked him to wait while I went back and got my camera, and although, he wasn't in the same spot, he hadn't left either. He was very patient while I took his picture and then he had to be on his way. Unfortunately he left before I had a chance to check his ID so I don't know his name. Can anybody help me?

Can you believe the transparent sections of his wings?!


  1. very cool shot of a neat looking dragonfly...i 'researched' it and came up with this:

    Appears to be a twelve-spotted skimmer (Libellula pulchella; Odonata: Libellulidae), a common dragonfly in much of North America, including southern Canada.


  2. I agree with junkdrawers. That was going to be my guess.

  3. Wow whatever it is, it sure is beautiful!

  4. Yes, it's definitely a Dragonfly!! I love em!


Gentle, strong, kind or true, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
Short or long, it's up to you, your comments and thoughts really make my day!
