Cochran Shoals – Butterflies, Dragonflies, and a Skink

I couldn't find what species of dragonfly this is. So I ordered a dragonfly identification book for future reference.

This is part 2 of my Cochran Shoals trip this week.  These images focus on butterflies, dragonflies, and a skink with a bright blue tail.  That’s a new one for me!

    I don’t know much about dragonflies or butterflies, but I do know that you have some excellent photos here of both.

    Beautiful work as always, Cindy. I’m reasonably certain that your unknown dragonfly at the top is a female Common Whitetail.

    Jim – you’re right, it’s a female common whitetail. Thanks!
