Going back to a warm October day when a number of dragonflies were flying over the pond and occasionally stopping for rest.
A few even landed on a tree at a height I could capture.
This pair entertained me as one or both repositioned just as I thought I had the shot. I thought it was interesting that they would land so close together.

It is always a joy to see dragonflies, Ellen, even if they are from a few months ago. It’ll be a few more months until they reappear–early April is the earliest that I can realistically hope to start seeing a dragonfly in my area.
Glad you enjoyed them, Mike. They do lift my spirits, especially this time of year. We did have a couple in our back yard the week between Christmas and New Years when it was warmer. Alas, they chose not to be photographed, or even approached enough for me to identify. I was pretty surprised at first.
This morning was 28 and we are going below freezing again tonight, so that was probably The End.
