Spangled Skimmer

I came across this Spangled Skimmer in Dogtown.  He has the most striking white stripes and stigma (markings towards the ends of wings).

Unfortunately, I couldn’t photograph her from the back so that I could show those wonderful wings in focus.

Extraordinary. I don't know how you get these incredible macro photos, they are so perfect.

And, my, what big eyes he has!

A year ago when I was on Cape Ann, I tried to photograph one of these guys behind my dad's house in Manchester. The wings vanished into the background and I wasn't at all happy with the photo. It's too bad, because they were pretty approachable.
