“Widow Skimmers are common summer dragonflies found near lakes, streams and in open fields. Its distribution is widespread across the U.S., except for dry areas in the Great Plains and in the Rocky Mountains. This is a female; the males have a broad white band outside of the black wing band. Like other dragonflies, they feed by catching flying insects.” — Carl Kurtz
