The great majority of my photos are of birds but I do take some other photos as well. Here are some Dragonfly pictures (plus one Damselfly) from this summer.
The Chalk-fronted Corporal has two white areas on its body. The part near its head is separated into two stripes. The US Army insignia for a Corporal has two stripes and I’m assuming that was the inspiration for this insect’s name. Another identifying feature of the Chalk-fronted Corporal is the small, dark, triangular spots on the hind wings next to the body. Chalk-fronted Corporals are about 1.6 inches in length. This photo was taken at our home in northern Minnesota.
