This morning on my walk at the wetlands, it was my goal to discover a new dragonfly. I was not disappointed when I walked to the edge of a little pond and this beauty caught my eye. I was patient and so excited when he landed on a bush nearby. It was as though he knew I just needed a few photos and I would be on my way. I believe this to be the male.
Is he not magnificent?
