More Painted Skimmer dragonflies (males)
Painted Skimmer dragonfly (Libellula semifasciata) is another species that should be added to “Top 10 Most Beautiful/Handsome Dragonflies of the Mid-Atlantic USA.”
These two individuals are males, as indicated by their terminal appendages. They are perching in a small meadow near a vernal pool/small permanent pond.
