I don’t believe that dragonflies deserve their name. There doesn’t seem to be anything fierce about them – unless you’re a mosquito. In that case – beware!
We’ve had quite a few dragonflies zipping around the farm fast and furious.
I’m fascinated by the colors on this guy. They remind me of the color of copper and verdigris.
This dragonfly, slow in the late afternoon sun, allowed me a closeup. His wings like tiny leaded windows are works of art.
