Red Dragonfly

By Humblebee
After having seen only four dragonflies this summer, like buses they all came at once and were sunning themselves in the late afternoon sun. I told my husband not to move a muscle cos if he scared them off whilst I raced inside to get my camera, I would kill him.

I have put up the Red Dragonflies today, and will put up what I have called the Green ones tomorrow (shows just how ignorant I am about dragonflies).

Hope you like them.

Many thanks for all your kind comments and votes on my 'Bottom up and Hanging on' they are as always very much appreciated.

A fine collection of images, Carol. My knowledge of them is on a par with yours so can't help with v4 I'm afraid.

Soon they will stop flying ... and then white flies will fly from the sky ...
