 Libellula Luctuosa - Widow Skimmer Kit

The Widow Skimmer (Libellula luctuosa) is one of a group of dragonflies known as the King Skimmers. The species occurs across much of the U.S. except in high mountain ranges, such as the Rocky Mountains. "Libellula" is the Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish word for dragonfly. Science has given the Widow Skimmer the species name: luctuosa which means "sorrowful"; The common name "Widow" is an interesting extension of this latin term, especially since males of this species do not usually guard females while they lay their eggs.

Adult Widow Skimmer dragonflies hunt from a perch located at the tip of grasses and wildflowers. Males dramatically increase in size during their breeding season. Females of the species rhythmically dip their abdomens to the water while they fly just above its surface, unaccompanied, but on rare occasion guarded by a nearby male. Males may be seen regularly combating to earn new or keep old territories. As a species they are active fliers and they inhabit most major streams and river systems, lakes, marshes, and still bodies of water, including marshy ponds, creeks, and borrow pits. Mature males have dark patches with white borders on both wings. Their abdomens start out blue and turn to a dusty white as they reach full maturity. Females and immature males distinct in that they lack the white wing patches of mature males, the thorax has a mid-dorsal yellow stripe and their abdomens are dark with yellow edges. Both sexes perch on common vegetation found in fields and open areas. From their perches they fly up to capture their prey.

Natural Widow Skimmers as with other dragonflies are ferocious predators and mosquito munchers that can consume as many as 300 insects in a single day. Food is not the only thing that a dragonfly will hunt. Most species survive as adults only for a month or two, so mating is an urgent priority. Like eating, mating takes place during flight, the female lays her eggs in flight, and the circle of life continues on.
