Northern Bluet Dragonfly
The Northern Bluet is found all over Massachusetts and indeed much of the United States. Known as Enallagma annexum, it is bright blue in color with thin black bands. Its wings are translucent with black grids. It is a gorgeous dragonfly! I apologize that these photos are fuzzy. They were taken on Manchaug Pond in September 2012 with my waterproof camera. It's not a great camera for taking photos of tiny insects. I'll try to get some better photos at some point, maybe by carefully bringing my real camera out on the kayak in a dry bag. All of these photos were taken in Sutton Massachusetts.
