This morning, our editorial staff ventured outside after posting many of our readers identification requests, and we immediately spotted this male Neon Skimmer.  We had seen a male in late June and then in early July we got some images of a female Neon Skimmer ovipositing in the stagnant fountain.  There are never any Mosquito larvae in the stagnant fountain, and the raccoons are always dragging out the algae, probably hunting for naiads.
