August 2, 2011-I believe, this skimmer is a Cardinal Meadowhawk (Sympetrum illotum). This is the first time I have seen one of these. If you look at it in larger sizes you can see more details. I cropped a bit and adjusted the contrasts a smidgen. (214:365) Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my shot of the twins yesterday, I truly appreciate it! I tried to comment as much as I could and hope to be able to do so again today.
