[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Went for my weekly Trek and had my ONE camera ready to shoot for "birds" and of course what do I see? YES dragonfly's everywhere. It was difficult to capture this little one and now off to research just who this blue beauty with the green face is!

WOW found a great web site to help identify them! This one is the ERYTHEMIS SIMPLICICOLLIS All one has to do is identify the 1. Wing Pattern 2. Abdomen color 3. Cerci color!

Here is the site if you are interested in researching, just click on "discover life" discover life

Hello Brenda,
A real beauty and shown in a pleasing presentation. I really like the green nose and eyes in contrast to it's powder blue body. Great capture and thanks for posting the link. I put it in my favorites to help with identification in the future. TFS.
