male Roseate Skimmer

When I first saw this Roseate Skimmer I was surprised I’d never noticed the color before.  Now I see them all over. red Dragonfly 016cs

The light angle wasn’t very good. I couldn’t get the true deep color.

Nature has it all over us…we still can’t design an airplane or helicopter that is as efficient as a dragonfly.


  1. He is just exquisite! Wonderful captures, and way to go!

  2. Wow, what a cool dragonfly! I'm intrigued by the inventory of them here in Florida. Haven't seen a Roseate Skimmer yet; I'll keep my eyes peeled!

  3. Aren't they beautiful!!! I like to try to capture them in pictures. Have a good weekend!

  4. Wow, it's just beautiful. I've never seen anything like it before, what a color.

  6. Gorgeous photos! He is so colorful. The colors and patterns in the wings on the last shot are so beautiful. I think maybe dragonflies are where the stories of fairies came from. This one especially looks very fairy-like.

  7. What a beauty, and such an unusual colour.
