Artist's Description

The Widow Skimmer, Libellula luctuosa, is a dragonfly, commonly found in much of the Eastern US. The Widow Skimmers commonly perch on foliage waiting for mosquitoes and other small flies to approach. The Skimmers will fly up off the foliage to capture and eat the mosquitoes. A single dragonfly can eat about 300 mosquitoes in one day. This female perched a little higher than my eye level, but in a perfect position for me to get this shot. I used my Nikon D3100 and the 85mm macro lens. I took it on the shore of Lake Telemark in Rockaway, NJ USA.
