12 Spotted Skimmer

12 Spotted Skimmer, SMHC Ponds, Kennebunk Maine

There have been 12 Spotted Skimmer Dragonflies around the drainage ponds at the Southern Maine Health Care center in Kennebunk for a week now, but yesterday was the first day I caught them sitting long enough for photos. The 12 Spot has to be one of the more striking dragonflies, but it also one of the most common, at least here in Southern Maine, so we often pass it by without a second look.
