Bug of the Week: Amberwing Dragonfly

I had a lot of interesting bugs to choose from this week.

The winner was this tiny, orange-winged dragonfly. It is only about an inch long.

It is a Mexican amberwing, Perithemis intensa.

This one was hovering in the air and then darting away.

It was hovering over a manmade waterfall.

Maybe someday soon I'll get to go back and get a photograph of one sitting still.

Do you have amberwings where you live?
