Pachydiplax longipennis, the Blue dasher;
Lowndes county, Georgia (12 June 2013).
Though they range far beyond the area, I positively adored the density of Blue dashers in Lowndes county, Georgia. Sure, this species ranges all the way west to California, northwest to Washington, and northeast to Maine, but southern Georgia was like an extended Odonatan rave of Blue dashers darting about on ecstasy. They were, in a word, abundant.
