Dear Trina,
It seems we don’t get enough photos of the magnificent Green Darner Dragonfly,
Anax junius.  During the research of his book, Daniel unearthed 13 Maleficent Names for Dragonflies, and they include Devil’s Darning Needle, Ear Sewer, Ear Cutter, Water Witch, Snake Doctor, Devil’s Little Horse and Evil Old Hag’s Horse.  Green Darners are a migratory species.
