[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When i took this photograph, i had no idea that it was nothing but a Slaty Skimmer (Libellula incesta). But yes, a Slaty Skimmer, and an immature male. Nice! Another form, in my collection :)

I, had posted a male (adult) Slaty Skimmer before . That one was from Tennessee. This one, i found near to that big pond, in Waseeka Wildlife Sanctuary. If you love dragonflies/ Damselflies and you're in Massachusetts, do visit Waseeka. Interesting place for Dragonfly/ Damselfly lovers :)
I saw many Slaty Skimmers, Eastern Pondhawks, Blue Dashers etc over there.
