Needham’s Skimmer Photo Album

 

Welcome to the TGO Nature Center’s Needham’s Skimmer Photo Album.  Our goal is to provide photographs to help identify this dragonfly.  Click on any photo to enlarge it for a closer look.

Gary Wittstock took the photos below at his pond.  He included this note on the head on shot “A heads on shot from my pond. These guys are very VERY fast flyers. I’ve found it impossible to focus on them in flight but have seen others get shots like that. I have no idea how they do it. At least they land all over the pond and often hang on a plant giving me plenty of time to focus.”

Great shots, Gary.
