Camera Critters #149

Western Meadowhawks are a common dragonfly in my area.  I guess they like the hot, dryness of the high desert as much as I do.

However, when I shot this guy this past summer, I didn’t know the hitchhiker on the tail end.  Looks like mites will latch on to anything.

Excellent photograph. Sometimes we don't know what we've got until we look closer.

Nice job..... Insect shots often seem to give you more than you expect when you press the shutter release! Thanks for sharing!
