I just got a new book from - Stokes "Beginners Guide to Dragonflies" so was excited to see a dragonfly in the yard. I promptly took his picture and set out to identify it. I was sure this gorgeous creature had to be the rarest of the rare. 

Twelve-spotted Skimmer
 I've decided it is a Twelve-spotted Skimmer, so named because of the twelve black spots (three on each wing). It's listed as "common." Oh well! I'm still pleased with my first Life Dragonfly!
