DRAGONFLIES

Here are a couple dragonflies I saw at Bubbling Ponds recently. The Flame Skimmer is a dragonfly of the Southwest, they are native to western North America. Their distinguishing characteristic is dark red-orange body. The females are usually darker than the males. The Blue-Eyed Darner is a common dragonfly in the western United States, spotted in sagebrush areas where water is present.
