Something outside caught my eye. Looking up I see a mdedium-sized dragonfly land on the California Poppies outside the window. I can't quite see it from my desk, so I nip out and find it is a fresh female Black-tailed Skimmer - garden tick! I managed a couple of quick snaps as it waved around in the wind, but as I was trying to move various stems from in front of hte drag, it took flight and was gone in a flash.
