This "Flame Skipper" Orange Dragonfly is resting along the California Yuba River. I spotted 2 a couple years ago and haven't seen any since.
The Flame Skipper is Native to Southwestern parts of the United States.Its found hovering around warm ponds,streams, hot springs,public gardens and back yards.
Like watching a flames in a fire,this dragon fly is quite hypnotizing. As it hovers its flaming orange body and wings so quick and gracefully from one place to another.
