Thank you all so much for your comments. I made a mistake on the name: it should be "Pachydiplax longipennis". I hope you all have a blessed 4th.

Wow! What a great picture! I am new to Better Photo and have been browsing for the past couple of days. There are a lot of incredible pictures, but this is the first one that really made me stop and marvel especially since I am a science teacher. Hopefully I can learn to take this quality of photos and acquire the necessary equipment. #5019194
