When I made the climb up the hill, I wasn’t seeing dragons where I though I should be seeing them. Then on the edge of the meadow on top of the hill, I found a little hot spot.
A year ago I shot an Arrowhead Spiketail in the same general area. These were exceptionally cooperative bugs.
The goal of many wildlife photographers is to get two species in one shot. How did I do?
In the same spot was a Twelve-spotted Skimmer that had claimed his favorite spot.
And down in the grass was another.
As if the Spiketail wasn’t cool enough, there was a Painted Skimmer that had her spot on a fallen white pine branch.
