When we visited our water reclamation wetlands on Sunday morning, we discovered the area was teaming with beautiful dragonflies! According to a fellow photographer (he had cool camera equipment and appeared to be very knowledgeable) there were 17 species of dragonflies there at the wetlands.
Below is my favorite dragonfly photo, thanks to my husband who spotted him for me (he is my lookout for cool photo ops😊).
He is a Flame Skimmer or Firecracker Skimmer.

NOTE: After I posted this I noticed his damaged wing. I think that makes him even more beautiful 💚💚
PS: I captured this with my zoom lens. I got very close, and he just posed for me. He was such a cool fly 😎
