Long Tail Dragonfly

Another dragonfly was flitting about today.  It’s interesting how the wing colors can make such an impression.  When this one – it’s a Common Whitetail (Plathemis lydia ) – flies, it looks like it has brown boxes at the ends of its wings, when in fact the color is in the middle of its wings.  Fortunately it stopped on a rock long enough for me to get a closer look.
