Spangled Skimmers At Davidson’s Mill Pond Park

The Dragonflies are abundant at Davidson’s Mill Pond Park giving photographers a lot of photo opportunities. The temperature here has finally gotten down to normal temperatures for this time of year. With the heat index’s around 110 degrees for most of the week it was not a great time to photograph outdoors chasing dragonflies. There are a lot of Spangled Skimmers in the two main ponds. So this post will highlight these dragonflies. This is the first time I have come across these dragonflies. It is interesting to see a few different varieties of dragonflies by moving to a new home only 65 miles from where I used to be.

  1. Thanks! They are fun to photograph as well as a challenge. I guess that is why I like photographing them. And why I use focus stacking on many of my subjects to try to keep the distracting background a little softer. Also the challenge to ID them – male – female – immature, etc.
