The Everwelcome Dragonfly

 This dragonfly is one of our most common at this time of year. According to KAUFMAN Field Guide to Insects  of North America, ISBN-13/EAN: 978-0-618-15310-7 or ISBN-10: 0-618-15310-1   Page 48 this is the Dot-tailed Whiteface [Leucorrhinia intacta]. In the evenings when the mosquitoes come out in swarms, these Whitefaces are welcome critters since the make quick work of the mosquitoes.
