Painted Skimmer dragonfly (female)

A Painted Skimmer dragonfly (Libellula semifasciata) was observed during a photowalk with my good friend Mike Powell along a small forest stream at an undisclosed location in Prince William County, Virginia USA.

21 MAY 2019 | PNC. William County, VA | Painted Skimmer (female)

This individual is a female, as indicated by her terminal appendages.


Look for Painted Skimmer near some sort of water body in the forest, such as a vernal pool or small streams and ponds.
