Roseate Skimmer

Belonging to the genius that nearly twenty skimmers that inhabit the American tropics. Males of many of them are a shade of red, but few are a powder blue or patterned with other colors. Females of the more northerly species are brown. Three species inhabit the U.S. of which one is widespread in the Southwest.

With it’s maroon thorax, unpatterned bright pink abdomen and plain wings and adult male is unlikely to be confused with any other Southwest dragonfly.

Roseates inhabit pond and lake edges, streams, and flooded roadside ditches occasionally showing up at ornamental water gardens and livestock ponds.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
