Four-spotted Skimmer, Libellula quadrimaculata

The Four-spotted Skimmer is a common dragonfly of North America, Europe and Asia. It's hard to really see the four spots of this insect - each wing has a small spot in the middle, at the front and a longer dark spot near the end. Since there are four wings, that actually makes a total of eight spots.

Living near wetlands and ponds, adults feed on other insects such as gnats and mosquitoes.
The state of Alaska has selected the Four-spotted Skimmer as its state insect.
