Bar-winged Skimmer dragonflies (young males)

Libellula axilena


This post features photos of one or more Bar-winged Skimmer dragonflies spotted at Huntley Meadows Park. These individuals are young adult males, as indicated by their partial pruinescence and terminal appendages. Bar-winged Skimmers are uncommon at Huntley Meadows.


I found these dragonflies in the exact habitat listed on the Odonata Central Web page for Bar-winged Skimmer: “Forest ponds, pools and ditches.”
