Twelve-spotted Skimmer dragonfly (male)

The following gallery shows a Twelve-spotted Skimmer dragonfly (Libellula pulchella) spotted along the boardwalk that goes through the central wetland area at Huntley Meadows Park. This individual is an adult male, as indicated by its distinctive pattern of wing spots, pruinescence that covers its abdomen completely, and the terminal appendages at the end of its abdomen.

I love a good head-tilt! (See Photos 3-4.)
