12-spotted skimmer, male … a 4th of July treat

These are rare in the Southeast and this guy may be a first record for July in Georgia. Most southern sightings are in the fall. I had a male at this location last fall, and again in May. The May individual disappeared quickly … could this be the same one? If so, where has he been? So many things we still don’t know about odes and their status. These are one of our prettiest species – they flash those black and white spots at you as they cruise by.
