Female Blue Dasher   (two photos)
Pachydiplax longipennis

female blue dasher
I found this photo of a female Blue Dasher in my files today (4-2-2016). I really had no idea what it was so I
submitted it
to Bugguide for consideration and they identified it for me. It was a gorgeous creature.
The dragonfly below that I photographed the same day in Henderson, Nevada was easy to identify
because  of the markings on the top of the abdomen. This one is so pristine that I believe it to
be newly hatched and possible drying out its wings. © Carol Davis 4-13-2013

female Blue Dasher
I found this female Blue Dasher in the Henderson Ponds, Henderson, Nevada.  You can see the male
dasher here, along with another picture of a female.  © Carol Davis 4-13-2013
