[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Early the other day I went for a hike with my dog and came across this dragonfly. I'm unable to correctly identify it; I found my guide, but I can't locate an identical photo in my book. Any ideas of what this one is? I think it is a male, though at the time I didn't care. This dragonfly was in an area filled with mosquitoes - I was glad to see it!

Hi Kathy. I will have a llok in my books for the ID. What ever it a fine close up. With sharp focusing and fine detail. I like the way the light is making the wings glint. Good natural colours. Well done TFS.

This is an excellent macro of the Four-spotted skimmer (Libellula quadrimaculata) taken from a fine POV with great sharpness and DOF to bring it out from the busy but OOF natural BG.
