Well, dawgawn if KellyRae didn't correctly guess dragonfly.
It's a male Blue Dasher (Pachydiplax longipennis). I'm always thrilled to see these guys - and all their cousins - patroling our yard. Anything that eats mosquitoes is OK in my book. We're seeing more Carolina Saddlebags this year, as well, but they're less inclined to sit still for a portrait. I confess I'm a bit partial to the Eastern Pondhawks, coz they're most likely to sit on my toes. 8-]
Thanks for playing, y'all!
Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^
