Great! Glad you got an ID for this beautiful spotting and image.

I think this is a Spangled Skimmer Female. I have a friend from my state who knows about it. Thanks Cindy!

Yes I was leaning toward that one as well but there were a couple pics that were similar in the Needham's so I didn't want to rule it out.

Seems more like Spangled Skimmer to me.

Hi Carol, I can't decide between the two ID's I provided. Check them out and see what you think.
