Female Eastern Amberwing (Perithemus tenera) on Walter's Viburnum (Viburnum obovatum)
A series of images combined on 11 layers.
One of our smallest dragonflies at less than an inch long, Eastern Amberwings are often mistaken for paper wasps, due to their size and body shape. If you keep your eyes open you can often find them hunting in various habitats. I have even spotted them in hedges at mall parking lots.
Unlike this female with her stained glass wings, the males have solid bright orange/amber wings.
