I saw a cool dragonfly species earlier this month along Disposal Road, a Needham's Skimmer (above).

They (there were 3) were flying and perching around a large mucky/algaeous puddle that backs up to phragmites between the white trailer and the fenced in machinery with the methane burn stack. 

There were also twelve-spotted skimmers, black saddlebags, and eastern pondhawk dragonflies, and familiar bluet damselflies in and around the same puddle.  The Needham's was a first for me. 

(Thanks, Steve!)
