Dragonfly taking a well deserved rest. I watched this little critter zipping by, diving, chasing others and even mating frantically for quite a while before it finally gave me a chance to take this photograph. I don’t know what drives these things; but if we could tap its energy, we’d have no more fuel shortage.
The photo is of a blue dragonfly, pondhawk or Libellula of some type. I have had trouble identifying it, so anyone knows what it is I’d appreciate your letting me know.
Photo data: Olympus E-3, Sigma 105mm lense; f/2.8, ISO 100
