Blue Dasher Dragonfly

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 13 July 2013 in Animal & Insect.

While walking around the water lilies, I wanted to try and get some pictures of dragonflies. I think they were on to me. Every time I thought one would hold still long enough, they buzzed off! This was the only picture that was half way decent.

Another wonderful close up! This one appears to be doing a balancing act on his head. :) Just a lovely shot all around.
