Dragonflies in the Yard

So far the butterflies are almost nonexistent this summer. I could probably count all I’ve seen on one hand.

So, I’ve switched to dragonflies instead. Their numbers are relatively low. At least they’re in the yard.

This is another widow skimmer. It’s fresher than the one above. This was the only angle it cooperated for.

Halloween pennant — it’s the first I’ve seen this summer.

I have yet to identify the dragonfly above and the one below.

It’s like I’ve said before, I don’t need a name to enjoy the find.

  1. We saw our first Monarch of the year yesterday. I’m stumped on the dragonflies.

    • It sure has been an unusual year where butterflies are concerned. Even dragonfly numbers are low. I have the Dragonflies through Binoculars and the Dragonflies of the Florida Peninsula, which help me a lot.
