1/500s, f8, 400ISO, autoWB, 90mm Tamron macro.

The abdomen colouration of this twelve-spotted skimmer dragonfly (Odonata: Anisoptera: Libellulidae: Libellula pulchella) is that of a female but it is likely a male (note the white spots on the wings) that is young and hasn’t whitened (become pruinose).
