Skimmer at the End of His Perch

Artist's Description

An Eight-spotted Skimmer (Libellula forensis) finds the delicate tip of a dried-out cattail leaf a useful perch. With each wind gust, the dragonfly waved about like a kite attached to a thick string. Soon, the creature moved on to a more sturdy resting spot.
