This may well be the very same male Common Whitetail(Plathemis lydia) that I posted 2 weeks ago - however now matured with the full powder blue abdomen. It was in the same vicinity of the alder bog behind the house as the previous whitetail image. At any rate, a pretty ode and very approachable.

Hello Derek,
As usual a top quality image with superb focus. A very nice specie of dragonfly. Amazing colors and splendid shape. Incredible sharp silhouette. Difficult to catch such a fast flying insect....the contrast against the background is fantastic.
Thanks for sharing this beauty!

Hi Derek,
Wonderful compo with the dragonfly positioned centrally. In macro photography it often works (like now). A pin sharp insect in front of a wonderful smooth background. Perfect colors also, not to mention splendid lights. Great job! Bravo!
Best regards, László
