Painted Skimmer dragonfly (female)

Painted Skimmer (Libellula semifasciata) is one of my favorite species in the Family Libellulidae (Skimmers). It’s hard to believe I didn’t post any photos of this beautiful dragonfly during 2018!

This individual is a female, as indicated by her terminal appendages. She was spotted near a mid-sized pond at the North Tract of Patuxent Research Refuge, Laurel, Maryland USA.
