Dragonflies in the Garden

This beautiful dragonfly showed up in our garden yesterday and Mr. RK got some pictures of her.  She’s a Flame Skimmer (Libellula Saturata), common in Northern California and usually found near ponds or lakes from April to October.  You can tell that she is a female because she’s more of a burnt orange color rather than bright orange and has a white stripe between her wings.

I love dragonflies.  I think they’re one of the most beautiful creatures in nature.  I’ve always thought if I was going to get a tattoo it would be of a dragonfly.
