Whitetail, Dasher and Skimmer

No, not some of Santa's reindeer, but the dragonflies gracing our pond today. Couldn't resist posting yet more dragonfly pictures (sorry).

Common Whitetail (this is the one I was trying to snap on Friday):

Blue Dasher:

Twelve-spotted Skimmer. This one chose the same spot to pose for the camera as the yet-to-be-identified black dragonfly I photographed on Friday.

These were identified with the aid of the Guides-on-Demand Common Toronto Arthropods site.
