  1. actually, it’s a Libellula pulchella (Twelve-spotted Skimmer)… what i discovered between the time i submitted the photo and the time it actually shows up…

  2. I got this guys. It’s a dragon fly.

    • actually, it’s a damselfly. dragonflies hold their wings at 90 degree angles to their body, and damselflies hold their wings paralell to their body.

      • No, it’s a skimmer, and you got dragons and damsels mixed up. The latter fold their wings up straight up from their thorax. Dragonflies and skimmers, like this one, hold them straight out.
