Skimmer Dragonfly

Orthetrum sp.

Description:

Large skimmer, resting on concrete fundation after hunting run next to a pond. The image is not good enough for me to be sure of the identification, but it looks like the male of the Black Tailed Skimmer(Orthetrum cancellatum).

Habitat:

Dammed pond next to farmland and leaf forest.
