Blue Dragonfly

Correction: I had identified this as a Blue Dasher Dragonfly.  See fellow blogger Mike Powell’s comment below about the ID as a Eastern Pondhawk and its ground behavior. Thanks Mike!

I am seeing dragonflies in all sorts of colors on our treks and even in our back yard. This one was on a berm near a small pond.

It surprised me he was more interested in the dry leaves and pine needles than in hanging out over the water.
