The widower...

...and best viewed large along with the photos in the comment section.


Good morning and Happy Dragonfly Thursday. Two weeks ago I posted a series on immature Widow Skimmers (Libellula luctuosa), which can be found at the below link for those of you who might have not seen it...


As a follow-up to that series is this week's set on mature Widow Skimmers starting with the above male or "widower" as I call him. I've included a female in the comment section, albeit very little difference from the male, and I also included one pic of an immature for comparison purposes.


I hope you enjoy this series of one of the most recognizable dragonflies in North America...and I hope you have a truly great day.




ISO400, aperture f/11, exposure .008 seconds (1/125) focal length 300mm
