As the dragon season winds down in Massachusetts I find that I didn’t get as many species as I usually do. I missed out on a lot of the early season bugs. But last Sunday I did find a late season Twelve-spotted Skimmer. She gave me a few scenes to chose from.
Darners can be particularly difficult to photograph unless you happen to be good a catching them on the wing, which I am not. I saw this Lance-tipped Darner land in the shadow of a Wisteria arbor and I was lucky enough to get a shot off.
Later on the walk, I saw another land on a dead tree on the edge of the swamp. Getting two opportunities to shoot these darners is quite fortuitous.
