Beautiful shots, Emma!
Gator Fellows i updated the ID, Thnx again!
My pleasure. Once you get a feel for the different kinds of Dragonflies and Damselflies; the web resource gets easier. It and the Damselfly comes from a book if you are a book researcher; the various field guides are on amazon and listed here: http://bigsnest.members.sonic.net/Pond/d...
gatorfellows,thanks for this excellent link. I will read it and the give you my feedback soon!.
I took the darkness for shadow or low light, so could not ID male or female. I looked a a field guide for California and compared the color on the wing and the the pterostigma (dark cell) in the wing structure. Flame seemed to be the only one that fit. Take a look and compare to the others in the list.http://southwestdragonflies.net/caphotos...This resource is not as specific as the last, but a favorite of mine.
Thanks Gator Fellows!it does seem like a flame skimmer doesn't it. It has a lot of brownish tint to it . Possibly a female?
Very nice series.
thank you Antonio :)
