This is my first dragonfly shot. I found this one in the woods near the Hatchie River today, near Brownsville, TN.
I am not familar with the many species so I would be very suprised if I identified this one correctly, so I will not label it. My guess would be a Skimmer either a Black-tailed Skimmer or a Keeled Skimmer, both are found in North America. But, I do not know. So, if there is anyone who can positively identify this one, I would love to know.
