Artist's Description

The Blue Dasher is an attractive, active, pond-loving dragonfly. Males perch above the pond, actively dashing out after prey or to defend their territory, and then return to their favored perch. This fella hasn’t quite gotten his characteristic blue coloring just yet, but he will soon. They look almost identical to females until they do. The easy way to tell them apart at this stage is that the males have green eyes, and the females have red eyes. If you look closely, you can see that he caught himself some lunch. I love the sun shimmering off of the lake in the background. I took this photo along the shores of Lake Telemark in Rockaway, NJ. I used my Nikon D3100 and the Nikon 85mm macro lens.
