this Skimmer landed near a Pondhawk I was photographing then flew backout. Did not seem affected by the missing wing.
Another one I was watcing through binoculars nearly got caught by a Bullfrog and the Pondhawk I was trying for had just finished consuming a Tule Bluet.

Wouldn't that make this a Six-Spotted Skimmer? :)
