A Pacific Spiketail Dragonfly is seen and photographed in Anchor Bay

Just look at this beauty! When I researched this Dragonfly, I learned it is very difficult to get a picture of one as they are always on the move. And, if they are perched, they are difficult to spot as they blend in with their surroundings. Rick and I were lucky to see it flitting near our neighbor's spring box and then watch it land.  The Pacific Spiketail's Latin name is Cordulegaster dorsalis. The black near the bottom of the Dragonfly almost looks like duct tape, don't you think? And, my, what blue eyes it has! I feel fortunate to be able to share my photo with you here.
