OT: Slaty Skimmer
I know this is the butterfly forum and not the dragonfly forum, but I saw this dragonfly down the road perching on some canes growing in a wet area. This area also has false nettles - it's where I took a cutting that started the false nettles on my property. Unfortunately, there were no caterpillars on the nettles, at least that I could see.
There were dragonflies there that were SO blue, indigo blue, I'd say. They kept knocking each other off their cane perches. According to my dragonfly field guide, a male slaty skimmer is most likely what this one is. It even said the males were very aggressive with each other, like these were.
Anyway, I thought I'd share -
