male Needham’s Skimmer dragonfly

I read that red dragonflies can be very hard to identify. As far as I can tell…this might be a male Needham’s Skimmer.


It looked much more red in real life.  I checked and there was a picture of the Needham’s Skimmer and they looked the same to me.

It claimed this stick by the birdbath as it’s own.

  1. He's a real beauty! You have a lot more varieties of dragonflies in Florida. We only have 30 varieties in Alaska.
