Dragonflies have been on earth for more than 200 million years — longer than dinosaurs! This one is called a flame skimmer dragonfly and is popular in Southern California. Taken May 7, 2013 – Encinitas, California USA

Your timing just perfect showing the dragonfly itself but also showing the life in it and not just a frozen image . Cheers.Tony.
Thank you so much, Tony. Of all my dragonfly photos, this is an all time favorite. I’ve taken better ‘macro’ with more up close images of their eyes and face, but the overall softness and feel of this one makes it one of my best and one I will treasure.
Betsy I have a challenge right now on insects. So join ODD ONE OUT and put this pic there. Tom oh ya Im a host lol.
I joined and entered, but this photo doesn’t stand out when it’s viewed so small. It has to be enlarged to catch the eye it seems to me. Thanks for asking though!
Can you send me a copy of this pic to email@example.com and I will see what I can do as it is a good one.
