The garden beds along the banks of the Ashely River at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens almost always are worth a wander by for some insect activity.
Late yesterday afternoon this rather bedraggled dragonfly perched for a few photos.
The flowers, possibly some kind of salvia, had its own problems having been chewed on or maybe unable to withstand this summer’s heat.
From another angle you can really see how much of the wings are missing. Flight didn’t seem to be a problem.
