Taken in early December 2011, this may still my only image of a dragonfly in flight. — kenne

Dragonfly In Sabino Canyon — Images by kenne

Near the end of last Wednesday’s SCVN Nature Walk, leader Ned Harris lead us over to a marshy area near Sabino Creek where he had seen dragonfly a few days earlier. Since the cooler weather isn’t conducive for dragonfly flight, I wasn’t expecting much. So, not surprisingly, there were only a few dragonflies darting around the small marsh area. I walked out near where one had found a favorite place, which I had notice, in his flight, he kept coming back to the same spot. The top image is the spot, and the lower image is dragonfly in flight — my first ever.

  1. Congratulations, kenne. I know well from personal experience how difficult it is to capture a dragonfly in flight and that is a great shot. I’d help with species identification, but that does not look like one of the ones we have here on the east coast.

  2. Thanks, Mike. I went to several sources trying to identify the dragonfly, it kind of looks like a Red Rock Skimmer, but I wasn’t sure enough to say.
