Great Blue Skimmer, Modeling

Great Blue Skimmers have returned to my back yard this year. My patio flowers aren’t nearly as plentiful or colorful as what I had for last year’s visitors.

The dragonflies like to perch on dried stalks and plant stakes.

This one let me maneuver around until I had him lined up with a tiny bloom of a purple salvia that provided a bit of accent in the background.

Dragonfly Assortment From July

Here we are staring at the door of September and I have dragonfly images left from early July. Time to move them on!

Fence pickets make great perches and are at a great height for photography.

On the other side of that fence a piece of rebar attracted a Roseate Skimmer.

A slope down into a pond was covered with little flowers and and grass seed heads for perches.
