Prior to developing a fascination for the lizards of this area, I grew fond of the dragonflies flying around the various places I would visit with my camera.
Friday, I went out again, in search of the greatest photo ever taken. I didn't see any lizards, and oddly enough, haven't for about two weeks now, but I did come across a couple of odonate, or dragonflies...one of which I briefly saw and was unable to get a photo of last year.
The dragonfly above is known as a Band-winged Meadowhawk. I've always loved their bright red bodies and tinted wings.
Above is the one I missed getting a good shot of last year...a Variegated Meadowhawk. Though not as pretty as the Band-winged Meadowhawk, in its own way, it is still a gorgeous critter.
