Pair Widow Skimmers

Dragonfly numbers have been low so far this year.

This female widow skimmer is one of the few I’ve photographed this summer.

The male widow skimmer landed right in front of me. Their range covers most of the U.S. except out west from Montana down to Nevada and Utah.

I hope dragonfly numbers increase in our yard.
