As most of my best photo opportunites happen, this dragonfly came to me. I was already stopped and this male Wandering Glider perched nearby and I got my best photos yet of this beautiful species.

This is only my fourth observation of Autumn Meadowhawk on Lake Creek Trail. And it was near the same spot I found a couple in 2018. Unfortunately it was perched in the shade and I had to manually focus on it. Before I could get to a position for better photos it flew away.

Twelve-spotted Skimmer is a large and dramatic dragonfly that I only ever see a few of in the neighborhood per year. I was happy to find this perched male.
