A Fairy Tale

A Fairy Tale

.....reminds me of fairies--This is a male Blue Dasher dragonfly--- about 1 3/4 inches in size-- a rather special one. as most have clear wings. His show amber patches.

I am glad some of you are mentioning learning about MOIRE' in my previous image--- good to know it is a useful image!
