The Blue Dasher

The Pachydiplax longipennis, Blue Dasher, is a small skimmer (25-33 cm) with a large personality. They are common around the ponds and I even see them in my yard from time to time.

These smiling, little beauties don't mind the camera.

September and October yield large numbers of these dragons. All photos were taken over the past month, except the below photo.

  1. Lovely shots Tammy, the 2nd and 3rd shot standing out for me. Love the detail in those eyes.

  2. OH, I'm in love! It is very very beautiful. You have the chance to see often.
    Greats photos Tammy !!!

  3. Hi Tammy! What a magnificent species and what brilliant images! Wow! With its eyes of opal, turquoise and emerald, the male is a jeweler's store! Best Regards, M.

  4. What a beautiful dragonfly is Tammy. I have never seen this in my opinion. Extraordinary fact that in different parts of the world are dragonflies that you see all over the world and dragonflies that you only encounter in a particular place. Very nice pictures.
    Greetings, Helma

  5. Just fabulous, Tammy, you did it again!!
    I am amazed at the color variation of their eyes!
    The close-ups are incredibly sharp!
    The female is as gorgeous as mister!

  6. Ah, ces yeux, incroyable ! Bravo Tammy !
