Perithemis tenera, the Eastern amberwing;
Lake county, Florida (28 June 2014).
To put it simply, this isn’t the greatest photograph I’ve ever taken, but it is the best photograph I currently have of an Eastern amberwing. Years ago, I used to see these quite frequently, but it’s been a long damn time since I’ve come across one close enough to photograph. I suppose I’m posting this image now to help perpetually remind myself to make finding this species (and photographing it better) a priority this year. Get out there, Jones. Get that shot.
