Summer Dragon

Widow Skimmer Dragonfly (Libellula luctuosa) male.

 

It is that time of year in Texas ~ when it's almost too hot to go outside and take photographs (notice I said almost). Even if you do go out, the wildflowers have mostly burned up and died off, and even the birds don't seem to want to move around much. But I can always depend on finding a Dragonfly out and about.

 

The male and female Widow Skimmers still seem to be the main Dragonflies in my area. I guess I'm going to have to get out more....
