Dragonfly Class at Armand Bayou Nature Center - Part Two

As I mentioned in the previous post, my left arm is in a sling following rotator cuff surgery.  I am slowly hunting and pecking on the keyboard.  I offer more pictures from Bob and Maggie Honig's September class for Master Naturalists at Armand Bayou Nature Center. Below there be dragons, a damsel, and a dragon-eater.
Roseate Skimmer, Orthemis ferruginea. His tail is the color of raspberry, his thorax is grape.
Roseate Skimmer, Orthemis ferruginea, male.
Eastern Pondhawk, male, Erythemis simplicicollis.  Powdery blue color with amber stigma.
Black and Yellow Garden Spider, Argiope aurantia, catches dragonflies inches above the water.  She has snared a female Pondhawk and at least one Blue Dasher.
Blue Dasher, Pachydiplax longipennis, perches above a brown and yellow damselfly.
