Libellula axilena, the Bar-winged skimmer;
Lowndes county, Georgia (29 May 2013).

Whereas cicadas often feel like over-sized, drunken pilots bludgeoning and blundering their way through the skies, their dragonfly brethren couldn’t be more opposite. They have such precision and grace to their movements, even when crouching perfectly still.
