Blue Dasher Dragonflies

In my dragonfly archives, I have more pictures of blue dashers than any other species. (At least, I believe so. As noted in a previous post, dragonfly identification is a tough study, for me.)  While I can’t claim absolute confidence, I’m reasonably certain that all of these are blue dashers.

      The internet let me down! I did a brief google search, and couldn’t find a satisfactory answer. There doesn’t seem to be a consensus on the origin of the word ‘dragonfly’…
