The dragonflies have started making appearances around my garden.
I love watching these graceful insects buzz around my garden. A small pond in my front yard, perhaps three feet long and two feet wide, seems to be enough to attract them by the dozens. I like how this one seemed to cock his head and consider me as I photographed him.
One of my goals for the summer is to learn more about the dragonflies and other insects that visit my garden. I think this one is the Great Blue Skimmer (Libellula vibrans). Lots of these come to visit, and they’re enormous.
I hope they’re eating lots of mosquitoes.
Your pics are wonderful, I can never quite get mine to turn out!! Lovely
Great pictures, The detail in the wings is perfect and although I can’t imitate it, I can appreciate it 🙂
One of the gardens on the Richmond Art Museum (RAM) Secret Garden Tour on 6/21-6/22 featured garden ornaments with dragon fly ornaments as a memorial to the daughter of the family. There were real dragonflies there also. I love them and they have such interesting life histories. Our half acre pond supports several varieties.
