Walton County, GA

We see males more frequently than females. Male Blue Dashers are quite different from the female and it took me a while to identify her. This female, nervous at first when she was on a live plant, let me get within close to her when she perched on a dead plant.  I was only a few inches from her before I’d finished photographing.
