Dos Dragonlets

A couple of Erythrodiplax from coastal Veracruz state, Mexico.

Band-winged Dragonlet, E. umbrata.

Black-winged Dragonlet, E. funerea.

The "Band-winged Dragonlet, E. umbrata." is the prettiest dragonfly picture I've ever seen ... thank you for posting this! I much prefer seeing the dragonflies flying around because that is when I find them to be gorgeous ... when not in motion and up close I find them quite ... bug-like ... but this one is quite lovely ... maybe because it isn't looking at me. But they are fascinating to learn about and I can quite believe they live up to their reputation of being dragons in the insect world.
