Description

Probably unconfirmable from this pic, but a large, red skimmer with red washes on the inner parts of the wings. Interestingly, we saw almost no odes until this showed up, and then they started emerging. Funny how time sensitive they are. How do I find them BEFORE this time, when they're resting?
