Thanks to KaHolly I now know that this lovely little thing is a male Spangled Skimmer. I do love identifying what I take photos of and am always very grateful to our blogging friends who help out. Thank you KaHolly. She has a wonderful blog which you can find here.
I am really glad I got this photo as I don't usually have much success with dragonflies. I was just very lucky this one decided to stay for a while, at least long enough for me to get him in focus. There were lots of them flying around.
Camera Critters is a wonderful meme created by Misty Dawn. Thank you Misty!
