bleached skimmer
I get a thrill out of finding these beautiful dragonflies because I so
 seldom see them. This one was perched on a stick at a turnout
 on Antelope Island.  Carol Davis 8-17-2017

bleached skimmer
Female Bleached Skimmer at Bear River MBR in Box Elder County.  Sometimes
these dragonflies have orange at the nodus (middle) of the wing and sometimes
 they don't.  This one has beautiful markings.  Carol Davis, 6-24-2007

              Skimmers mating
My favorite dragonfly photo! Bleached Skimmers were abundant at Salt Creek
in Box Elder County this week.  They have such a cute face--like they're
smiling all the time. These two mating skimmers were seemingly
 pleased to have their picture taken. Carol Davis 8-20-06
