Glad I could help. I'm no authority on dragonflies. I just look at ID websites -- and I may still get the ID wrong at times. :)

Thanks Kevin! It's nice to have some who knows what they're talking about! I was about 4-5 feet from this guy for this shot.

This one's an eight-spotted skimmer. :) Wonderful shot; I can't get that much depth in my dragonfly shots. Dragonflies can be hard to tell apart. This one can be identified by the black spots with white between them. The whitetail skimmer just has one black spot on each wing. -kevin :)

Thanks Gil. Now that I think about it, I did hear a couple of ducks in the tules!

Also, I think Kevin (tamcat) told me once that this is a white tailed skimmer

Wow! A great shot & series Steve. Sorry you didn't see any other Wildlife.
Wow! and I feel bad when we only see several Deer, and a handful of Hawks, a few Geese, & Ducks but no Eagles!
The one Eagle we would see would make the trip so much more interesting. Yet when we see them, it's never close by at that Refuge.

About backwardguy

backwardguy

My wife of 42 years and I live in Hermiston OR. on a 5 acre "farmette". I was an elementary school teacher for 29years. I retired at the end of June 2015 and have been working hard ever since!. I enjoy the outdoors and animals and I'm an avid (not a good) golfer. My wife and I take our motorcycles on long trips and our destinations are almost always the beautiful National parks in Oregon, California, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Washington, Utah, and last summer we added Arizona to the list. Photography has long been an interest of mine and many of my photos are taken on our little farmette, and on our motorcycle trips.Click for weather forecast
