Common Whitetail: two- and three-panel diptychs


The preceding gallery shows diptychs of Common Whitetail skimmer dragonflies (Libellula lydia) spotted during several photowalks. These individuals are female, as indicated by their brown bodies and mid-wing brownish-black bands that do not go edge-to-edge on translucent wings. (Males have a white abdomen and mid-wing brownish-black bands that go edge-to-edge on translucent wings.)

The diptychs (shown above), entitled “Whitetails Whose Tails Aren’t White,” were created using Aperture and Diptic app for Apple iOS mobile devices.
