Blue Dasher – Pachydiplax longipennis

The Blue Dasher is a very common skimmer dragonfly. It’s found almost everywhere in the US. I ran across this male today in the county Extension Garden on Florida Avenue. He seemed quite happy to pose so I took advantage of the opportunity to get very close.

About birds n' bugs

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
