Nice. Never seen on like that before.

This guy came to visit a couple days ago. He was eating something when he landed.

Yes, black saddlebags skimmer. The "saddlebags" are actually a pattern on the hind wings but they sure look like something else. My wife thought it was too cold to fly so she tried to take a picture with a ruler next to it...she was wrong.
