I only occasionally photograph butterflies or dragonflies. But Marlene pointed a dragonfly out for me at Julian over an artificial stream and pond.

I really know nothing about identifying these insects other than selecting one that looks like the correct size, shape, and color from the list of southern California dragonflies. If I am correct, this is a Flame Skimmer.
