Neon Skimmer on Horsetail 7239

When I was at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center on July 10th I photographed this obliging dragonfly that I take to be a neon skimmer, Libellula croceipennis, on the strobilus of a horsetail (genus Equisetum). Both the horsetail and this type of dragonfly are making their debut here today.
