After photographing the dragonfly for my post Dragonfly, Yellowish Abdomen that was perched on a branch I was surprised to spot a couple on the ground. So much for dragonflies sticking to one behavior!
This was on a short side trail off the mowed grass trail that was strewn with leaves and sticks.
The dragonfly flew to my other side, nicely perching on a dried seed head of some kind.
Fellow blogger Mike Powell (MichaelQPowell.com/) thinks my first post was of a juvenile female Great Blue Skimmer. I’ve just bought Dragonflies and Damselflies of the East and am on my way to learning more about the dragonfly and damselfly worlds; at more than 500 pages there is a lot to know.
