"Fiery Red Dart" Flame Skimmer at Downey ID 05Jul2011

This striking red dragon, the Flame Skimmer (Libellula saturata), is quite large. The aerial beast commands attention as it sails over rich, green wetlands. At the Downata Hot Springs Resort, near Downy, ID, a large number of these odonates flitted about, bright red darts chasing each other in vivid aerial dances, apparently in territorial contests.
