We found this cool dragonfly in our garden and wondered what kind it was. He held still long enough for me to get a cool picture. Thanks.

Dragonfly

Female Widow Skimmer

Hi Marie,
This really is a beautiful Dragonfly photo.  We are much too tired to try to identify it tonight, so we are posting it.  Perhaps one of our readers will supply an identification comment before we awake.  Well, after posting, we decided to give it a try, and we found a match on BugGuide to a female Widow Skimmer,
Libellula luctuosa.
