Common Whitetail

This is a young male Common Whitetail dragonfly I spotted at the back pond in Bob Jones Park in Southlake, Texas on September 18, 2013. I’m always happy to find such a fresh looking specimen. As this young male gets older, his beautiful light blue abdomen will turn a chalky white.
