June 22, 2013: Blue Dasher

Blue Dashers are a small skimmer.  Spring individuals are actually larger than those found in Fall.  This male has green eyes, a mostly white face, with a metallic blue (whitish in photo) abdomen.  The dark brown thorax has some thin yellow stripes.  Its flight season is from May through September.  They are commonly found around Jensen Pond. 6/19/13 (Wolf.
