Slaty skimmer dragonfly?


Possibly an immature male Libellula incesta ... I think it's a skimmer because of the wing pattern more clearly seen in first photo (anal loop shaped like sock and wing triangles dissimilar) and habitat. It was about the length of a chalk fronted corporal. It was clearly yellow on the sides of the abdomen


Open area in mixed woodland near shallow, still pond. We get lots of chalk fronted corporals and four-spotted skimmers here in case that helps with the habitat.
