It doesn't pay to keep your eyes in the distance in the Everglades either. There is a wealth of wildlife in the foliage all around. This brown striped dragonfly caught my eye as we were about to leave a "hammock", a slightly higher, drier ground in the National Park.
If anyone know what this species is called, please drop me a line. I have searched the Internet but cannot find it anywhere.
Thanks to Bente (Milloup) I found that this species is "Celithemis Eponina". Thanks Bente!

Le fond flou est tout simplement superbe...avec tout ce beau vert!!!
Détails hallucinants de ces ailes quasiment ...allumées par cette belle lumière!
De gros bravos.....

It's a beautiful capture, but from an angle where it may well prove difficult to ID it with any certainty. This page: http://www.esb.utexas.edu/jcabbott/odonata/photogalleries/index.html covers species from Texas, and they have a comprehensive collection of photos - try checking out the skimmer section, several of those have stripes on the wings similar to this one. If you don't find a certain match, maybe the webmaster can help you out, even if your species is from Florida and not Texas ;-)
