Blue Dasher

By taggart  
Blue Dasher
Pachydiplax longipennis 1.4"


I ventured a walk to the rain swollen pond today---and found this Blue Dasher guarding his Mrs. as she bobbed in out dropping eggs. He was very busy fending off contenders but I was ready for his rest. Wish I could have gotten closer, but it was too risky---water is deep and the margins are marshy......

A HUGE thank you to havecamerawilltravel for his User Award for CALVIN! Fun!

If you'd gotten any closer you would have frightened him off....this is amazing. Dragonfly days there, black fly days hereGrin Getting into the garden to weed is like walking into a torture chamber!Sad

Sheer delight Jennn. The detail and light quality on this Dragon is just about perfect. I am always amazed at the delicate tracery of the wing veins in these creatures and you have captured this so well.
