Dot-tailed Whiteface

I’ve never had good luck with Dot-tailed Whiteface dragonflies until now. These were taken in Dogtown by Babson Reservoir.

Common Green Darners ovipositing

The Common Green Darner is the only North American darner that normally oviposits in tandem. They will land on a piece of vegetation for a minute or so to start the next generation of skeeter-eaters.
