Hello Little Dragonfly

I chased this little friend around my lantana plant Saturday.  It fascinated me that he would fly up, and then back down to the exact same location, repeatedly.  It was fun to hang out with him for a while 😊🧡

My post for Sunshine’s Macro Monday

If you are old and you wish to be young again, if only for a moment, try and identify a dragonfly.

Their love as a dragonfly, skimming over echo park, stoppin to visit the lotus. Eating dreams and drinking blue sky.

When a dragonfly flutters by, you may not realize, but it’s the greatest flier in nature. It can hover, fly backwards, even upside down.
Louie Schwartzberg

The dragonfly is an exceptionally beautiful insect and a fierce carnivore. It has four wings that beat independently. This gives it an ability to maneuver in the air with superb dexterity. A dragonfly can put on a burst of speed, stop on a dime, hover, fly backward, and switch direction in a flash. This is a hunting behavior known as hawking.
