Any entomologist out there? Got a pic of this dragon fly. Very pretty. Never saw it before.

That's spectacular. Maybe post it on this thread, and someone will know? The thread "Dragonflies, Damselflies, Mayflies - June 2013" in Gardening for Butterflies, Birds and Bees forum

Let us know if you get an answer to it - what a beautiful bug.

The only ones I get down here are the gorgeous golden bronze ones...I never seem to have my camera on hand to catch a pic though. After checking the thread on dragonflies, I'm wishing that I got some of those around here also.

I'll have to do some research and see which dragonflies I might expect to see in our area. I usually only see the one..and though it's a beauty, I'd like to have more.
