Black Saddlebags

Black Saddlebags are a migratory dragonfly which are often seen in large groups after emerging in August and September before flying south. They spend most of the time patrolling in flight and perch infrequently. They are easy to identify by their "saddlebags" pattern seen underneath or in flight. Many photos here are juveniles and as an adult the dark areas will turn a very dark blue.
