Star Spangled Fourth redux

A Spangled Skimmer dragonfly (Libellula cyanea) spotted during a photowalk through Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA. The Spangled Skimmer is easily differentiated from similar blue dragonflies by the black and white pterostigmas located on the leading edge of all four wings, toward the wingtips.
