Although I saw 12-Spotted Skimmers many times, I never saw one land.
Another 12-Spotted Skimmer doing a fly-by. Twelve is the total number of spots on all wings.

Another Four-Spotted Pennant.
This is also a Four-Spotted Pennant, but the lighting is such that the spots are less visible. This dragonfly is one of the few with white pterostigma.
