A very historic shot and unfortunately, as you can see, not a good one. Dating from 2003 in France, this is my first ever photo of a dragonfly pre-dating my current interest in Odonata. Now thoroughly addicted, I revisited this picture and initially thought, "Black-tailed Skimmer", with which I'm familiar. However, I'm now pretty sure that it was, in fact, a White-tailed Skimmer (see my identification notes). I wish I'd taken a better shot as it remains my only sighting.
