I hope you can see the dragonfly here---she was a little too far and too fast for me to get a really good portrait of her. This is my favorite type of dragonfly that visits my pond during the summer months. I just love the big black spots on the wings! I don’t see them all the time, so when I finally identified it I was surprised to learn that it is a common whitetail dragonfly (female), Plathemis lydia.
