Record Details

Species Paltothemis lineatipes (Red Rock Skimmer)
Specimen Notes First seen flying pretty high then it came down lower eating lots of insects. I noticed it didn't have as much red in the wings as a Flame Skimmer and didn't have saddlebags. I realized it was a Red Rock Skimmer I watched it for awhile and it eventually landed. And I got some photos.
