What’s yours is mine

Dragonflies seem to have no understanding of either personal space or property rights. Of course that’s only part of their appeal!

I stopped for a drink of water during a brief photowalk at Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Prince William County, Virginia USA. A Needham’s Skimmer dragonfly (Libellula needhami) landed on the tip of my Sunpak 6700M aluminum monopod, lying on a Coleman camp stool.

This individual is a mature female, as indicated by her terminal appendages, muted coloration, and slightly tattered wings.
