Widow Skimmer - Libellula luctuosa

A Widow Skimmer (latin: Libellula luctuosa) dragonfly - this young male, his thorax and abdomen haven't turned blue yet, posed for me one morning, either warming up or already waiting for prey.
They love to eat mosquitoes, so I hope to see many, many more on our property.
