Dragonfly, Yellowish Abdomen, 2

After photographing the dragonfly for my post Dragonfly, Yellowish Abdomen that was perched on a branch I was surprised to spot a couple on the ground. So much for dragonflies sticking to one behavior!

This was on a short side trail off the mowed grass trail that was strewn with leaves and sticks.

The dragonfly flew to my other side, nicely perching on a dried seed head of some kind.

Fellow blogger Mike Powell (MichaelQPowell.com/)  thinks my first post was of a juvenile female Great Blue Skimmer. I’ve just bought Dragonflies and Damselflies of the East and am on my way to learning more about the dragonfly and damselfly worlds; at more than 500 pages there is a lot to know.

  1. Go Ellen! It’s neat to read that you’ve bought the book 😀 and it’s lovely to see the photos of the ones you find in your locality!
