Description

Looking at photographs on the web, I want to say this is a scarlet skimmer, but in Florida it looks like this is a bit far north for them. Just not sure. Any ideas, odonata masters of the universe?

Update: thanks to megatherium for confirming this is, in fact a scarlet skimmer! Much appreciated!
