That's a cicada, mabye similar to the Platypedia I posted when I started the thread.

I see that now, thank you, I appreciate your help. This photo was taken in 2009, I should have check my ID again before posting it. 🙂

I'm on a roll...two corrections back to back...maybe I'll just post pictures without any names, lol!!!  😁

Thank you so much but it's okay, since there has been some conversation about the photos I'll just leave them as they are but I'll be more careful in the future. 🙂

OK! Next time just ask me and I'll be happy to help.

It's not easily done but it's fun trying.

Ah, the Black Saddlebags.  They've actually been known to perch on occasion.

I too have experienced the joys of photographing dragonflies in flight.  Here's an attempt at a Riffle Darner.

Boreal Bluet Damselfly

Nice shot, but are you sure that's not a Northern Bluet?  They're very hard to tell apart--you need a high-res straight-down shot of the appendages on the tip of the abdomen, or so I read.  And both are found throughout the Pacific Northwest, and a lot of other places.

Thanks! No, I'm not 100% sure...it could be a Northern. I thought I had some more shots but I can not find them so must have deleted them...something I do often and then regret doing it. 🙂
