Eastern Pondhawk Dragonfly (Erythemis simplicicollis)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Eastern Pondhawk Dragonfly (Erythemis simplicicollis)

This species of dragonfly is noted for resting on the ground. They blend in with grasses so are barely noticeable.

Beneficial in both larval stage (aquatic) and as adults where they take flying insects. Some in this species are blue at certain stages of development.
