* Variable Darner (Aeshna interrupta Walker, 1908)

* The Variable Darner (Aeshna interrupta) is a dragonfly of the family Aeshnidae, native from Alaska through the Northwest Territories to Newfoundland, south to New Hampshire and Michigan in the eastern United States, and to the mountains of New Mexico, Arizona, and California in the west. It's named after the distinctive broken stripes on the sides of the thorax of many male specimens. It lives in many habitats from northern and mountain peatlands to cattail marshes and temporary pools. It is the characteristic species of grassland ponds.

Hello Kevin,
very good point of view to show the dragonfly resulting in excellent focus of the entire body and an appropriate smooth non-distracting background. I always appreciate nice natural colours and 'balanced' light.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Kevin,
This interesting dragonfly showing unusual markings on the thorax is new to me. Fine sharp capture and true colours. I like the way you managed to get a side view and the background is a beautiful warm colour too.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla
