Gray sanddragon (Progomphus borealis)        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Gray sanddragons are interesting dragonflies with a very long 'clubbed' tail.   These were resting on twigs above ponds at the San Jacinto Wildlife Area near Riverside, California, and at Desert Center, in southeastern California not far from the Colorado River.
