Cleared for takeoff!

The following photo features three male dragonflies perching on a tree branch at Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA. Shown from left to right: Slaty Skimmer (Libellula incesta); Needham’s Skimmer (Libellula needhami); Spangled Skimmer (Libellula cyanea). I imagine the three dragonflies are jets parked in a queue on an airport runway, waiting to receive clearance for takeoff.
