Late Season Dragonfly

I’m still occasionally seeing dragonflies, capturing these on Sunday as he investigated a manicured shrub hedge.

Look closely through his wing below and you’ll spot another thorn pointing away from his body.

An un-obscured head shot proved elusive and the direction of his position may have been due to the stiff breeze we had that day. These were taken in an area that is often overrun with mosquitoes so I was happy to have the air movement.

  1. Gorgeous Ellen. A recent piece that I’m including in an attempt at fantasy writing features the fighting of war from dragonfly back. Wonderful creatures (not so much the war).

  2. Wow! That second shot Ellen.. what a great shot that is! With your permission, I just gotta feature that sometime. There’s a different photo you’ve okayed me to use that I’ve never actioned yet, will have to look that out too – I suspect the two would go well together in a single post.

    1. Thanks, Liz, how very nice! I was able to position myself to capture him without the branches and leaves behind him.Yes, you may use this image and thank you for your interest!
