Face the dragonfly!

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve captured a few close up photos of my dragonfly friends. The details of their face and body amaze me. There is such a variety of colors. They are such fascinating creatures.

    1. Yes! And someone told me there are 18 or 19 species in that area. I’m actually trying to see how many I can identify with a nature app I discovered. Just fascinating!

  2. These are stunning photos, Lisa! Dragonflies always have so much character when viewed close up. I have seen a few around here this year, one even zipped through the garden, but they haven’t really kept still for me to snap, so nice!

    1. Thank you Peter! I remember seeing one in my front yard like a year or two ago. But then in the spring all of these hatched at our little wetlands area. It was amazing! And they land a lot. With my zoom lens and the right lighting, it seems quite easy to get photos. I’m on a little mission to see how many I can actually identify 😊

    Inspired by all of your nature walks, I visited the museum yesterday and it was so peaceful on the grounds. I immediately felt a strong sense of calm and rejuvenation. Needless to say I intend to go more oftenπŸ˜‰

    As I watched some dragonflies flutter by I was struck even more so by how amazing your shots of them areβ€οΈπŸ€—

    1. Thanks Teri! There is something about being outdoors. We got rain last night. Today was about 10 degrees cooler than yesterday! So I went out on a walk right before sunset. The sunset was beautiful. It just relaxed my brain and made me happy 😊 Can’t wait for things to green back up after a bit more rain.
