Widow Skimmer (f)

(Libellula luctuosa). While males are an aggressively common dragonfly around the edges of ponds, females often retire from the clamor, prefering to hunt and rest in fields and pastures. Key field marks: black banded wings, yellow and black striped abdomen. Habitat: most large ponds and adjacent meadows on the plains. Season: spring to fall. Photo by Steve Jones.
