I found a new dragon!

I was fairly excited to find this dragonfly a week ago a week ago in Ipswich, Massachusetts. The best guess that I have is that it is a female Ashy Clubtail. The second choice would be a Dusky Clubtail, my books tell me that it is best determined “in the hand”.

This female has been through a great deal. Her wings are missing bits and pieces.

This dragonfly was about 100 yards away from the Ipswich river.

Just for fun, here is a female Blue Dasher.

Excellent 'head shot' regardless of its true identity.

How neat that you found a new dragon to share. They are such cool looking insects and your photos of them are just amazing.
