A pair of mating Cardinal Meadowhawks make babies while  a Widow Skimmer shows off its amazing wing apparatus.

I happened to be in West Virginia  a couple of weeks ago at the Camp Dawson National Guard center. Doing my usual thing during my lunch break I headed out to the open area in search of wildlife. I love all species, of course, but dragon flies are one of my favorites. The pond where I settled down when it was time to dine was loaded with these fascinating insects. More details to follow, but for now I want to share these photos in order to show the complexity of their wings. I LIKES it!
