Purple Skimmer

Last week I spotted Purple Skimmers preforming their namesake behavior over a pond. There was a good supply of mosquitoes to keep them occupied.

I don’t recall seeing this species before but in typical dragonfly behavior they taunted me to get an inflight shot.

I was not successful as each spot they hovered had a vegetation obstruction or I was just too slow. Fortunately they took frequent breaks.
