Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, along Pine Creek, west of Las Vegas, Clark Co., Nevada, USA.
Pine Creek is an intermittent stream in a rocky canyon just below foothills of Spring Mountains. These were common at pools and along the stream channel, even in dry stretches. Only dragonfly species seen here, although I was looking for Red Rock Skimmers which have been reported here in past.
The Flame Skimmer or Firecracker Skimmer (Libellula saturata) is a common dragonfly of the family Libellulidae, native to western North America.
