Eastern PondhawkErythemis simpliciolis
This wonderful green species inhabits the eastern United States. As the nickname suggests, they favor a wet environment, where they’re camouflaged among nearby greenery until mature enough to mate and lay eggs in water vegetation.

Beautiful magical quality to this, Briar! LOVE the light!
Thanks, Mrs. Bonnie! It was simply a stroke of good fortune that she landed on a cone flower with a beautiful shaft of Sunlight shining down.
Thanks for hosting such an awesome group, Ray.
Hi Tania! Thanks very much! So glad it caught your eye.

Thanks for adding my pic to your wonderful group!
Nice Pondhawk capture!! I REALLY need the weather to cooperate here in NJ. I’ve only seen ONE dragonfly here so far!! :(
Thank you so much, William! Up in NJ, you’re aconsiderably farther northward than I am, so I’d imagine you’ll see more of them around mid-summer. We’re beginning to warm up in earnest for the summer in Louisiana, and they’re fast becoming ubiquitous.
What a skillful macro image… and your composition is very visually interesting also.. Great work!
Thank you so much, Kat! Very kind of you.
