The Flame Skimmer, Libellula saturate, is a common dragonfly native to western North America. These magnificent insects are often seen resting with their wings held out, on a bare branch, near warm ponds or streams, but also in gardens or backyards. They are fierce aerial hunters, dashing after flying insects and returning to their perch to enjoy their meal. More about this species: Encyclopedia of LifePhoto by Katja Schulz via iNaturalist.org
