US Dragonflies

This past spring we moved back to the US. We are now located on the Connecticut coast. We have done a lot of birding and beachcombing, but I managed to see some pretty cool new dragonfly species, too. I didn’t spend much effort dragonflying, but here are some of the species I saw, including a seaside specialist. Note just how variable the Seaside Dragonlet is, from bright orange to nearly black!
