Dragonflies Arrive

This particular dragonfly would fly around and land on this same dried open Daylily seed pod.. I found it odd, but wasn't going to complain, because I didn't have to run around the yard following him for pictures.

Dragonflies have appeared in the garden.. I think they were hiding during our heat wave and have come out to play now that it has cooled down a good ten degrees.

wonderful photo of the dragonfly. They are so skittish, I have yet to take a picture of one. Great photos of the swallowtail too.

I love dragonflies! I've never even attempted to photograph them, with my little camera though. Oh how lucky you are. And thank you so much for sharing these with us!

I used to be scared of them when I was a kid. They are a joy to have around when they come to the house now. Wonderful photo's

Beautiful dragonfly photos, I'm glad he was so cooperative. I wish I had more of them in my garden.

Great pictures. I have not tried to capture one with the camera. I think your dragon flies are bigger than the ones around here. I hear you should have a water feature to attrack them. Do you? We do but I have never seen them at it. Not sure if what I heard is true.

Thanks for sharing!
