Skimmer Dragonfly

Orthetrum sp.


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).


Dammed pond next to farmland and leaf forest.
