Flame Skimmer

Flame Skimmer, AZ Sonora Desert Museum, Tucson AZ

The Flame Skimmer is a favorite dragonfly of mine, for many of the same reasons yesterday’s Vermillion Flycatcher is a favorite bird. I only see them here in Arizona or in South Texas, so I don’t see them often, and they are actually kind of the same surprising color! This one was flying around the Mountain Islands habitats at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum when I visited this week. Sony RX10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with Program Shift for greater depth of field. 1/60th @ f11 @ ISO 250. Processed in Polarr.
