The Twelve Spotted Skimmer – Libellula pulchella. Family: Libellulidae (Skimmer Dragonflies)
Found this beautiful creature darting about a pond near my home in Green Bay, WI. So fascinating to watch. Patience was so critical in order to capture this one. This was the only shot I was able to get as it was constantly on the wing searching for food.
