Size: two inches or slightly mo
This emerald sat perched on some tomato stakes I have holding up my lobelias which surround a small water feature in my backyard. It was very cooperative and I was able to get many photos and had a long look at it. I believe it to be a fine-lined emerald. I also have a shot from the back of the dragonfly which I will also upload.

These are the first images submitted of a male. Could you please crop these images closer to the dragonfly? Thanks.
