Four-spotted Skimmer

Four-spotted Skimmers are found across Canada and the northern United States (further south in the West). They also inhabit Europe and Asia, where they are known as Four-spotted Chasers. I caught this individual backlit in Erika’s garden on 8 June 2017. Some populations are migratory, and can be found in large aggregations. The prey upon other dragonflies, even those of similar size (Odonata Central).
