Dragonfly in KY

Here is another dragonfly that I saw in KY this summer.

I haven't been able to find out what kind it is.

It’s not as pretty as the Amberwings or the Blue Dasher, but is still unique.2 070cs

Some are moving so quickly it is almost impossible to get a picture…but this one seemed to enjoy it. It looks as if the wings are hinged with bits of gold.

2 084cs

It spent as much time watching me as I spent watching it.2 089cs


  1. I don't know their name, but we have some like that here in MS.

  2. Gorgeous! I especially like the dark color pattern on the wings. Great captures.

  3. Lovely markings on the wings. It looks quite big too.
    I'm looking forward to the return of ours here.

  4. Those are some dandy photos! I've seen many that look like that around my lake in Missouri too.

  5. Very nice series! He's beautiful.

  6. He's very beautiful. I especially like the closeup shot. Those gold "hinges" are really striking.

  7. I think this is a band winged skimmer
