Common Whitetail and Blue Dasher dragonflies

25 09 2012

This is my first-ever photograph of two different kinds of dragonflies on the same perch! The bottom one is a Common Whitetail dragonfly (Plathemis lydia) and the top one is a Blue Dasher dragonfly (Pachydiplax longipennis). Photographed at Huntley Meadows Park; the marsh water was low and very muddy in color
