Skimming Darter Dragonfly

Watercolour by Helen Frost Rich, of a common darter dragonfly skimming across moving water.

Dragonflies have such perfect descriptive names. There are Chasers, Skimmers, Hawkers and Darters. I love to watch them hunt on a warm summer evening, dipping low across moving water or weaving in and out of the reeds and low branches.

This painting was inspired by the common darters skimming over a lake like flying needles, small acrobatic flashes of red.

Watercolour 19.5cm x14.5cm
