Dragonfly on Crepe Myrtle Seedpod

Back Yard Dragonfly

In recent years the dragonflies in our backyard have been nondescript, plain black models, at least as much as I had noticed. This past week we have had a steady procession of dragonflies of different sizes and colors zipping around the yard.

  1. These are so lovely photographs Ellen. Dragonflies are my favourite insects. Unfortunately, due to wheather changes I don’t see many in my part of the world.

    1. Thank you, Greta! I have seen them in lots of places this summer, but not in huge numbers. That is too bad they aren’t thriving near you; it’s great that they eat other bugs!
