Great Blue Skimmer Dragonfly

Great Blue Skimmer Dragonfly

A number of dragonflies were working the edges of the the swamp along the boardwalk. This Great Blue Skimmer chose a perch that gave me a good view.

The greenery made a nice background and the dragonfly stayed put while I went by him for a different angle.

    1. I agree, Mike, it’s great to see those eyes. I try to get multiple views, but as you know that doesn’t always work out! They are fascinating, with endless behaviors. I watched one in our back yard yesterday chasing flower petals falling from a Crepe Myrtle that I suppose he thought were a bug.
