Dragonfly Days---Widow Skimmer

If you're interested in capturing photos of dragonflies, the best times to try are early in the morning or right after a rain.

Early in the morning is best because the dragonflies are just warming up after the night's coolness. Later in the day they'll be moving fast over ponds and through weeds chasing after food.

This Widow Skimmer was captured as it was drying off just after a rain shower. As the sun came out it set off to capture its fill of mosquitoes.
