Blue Dashers are one of the more common dragonflies that you’ll find. Males develop a light blue color and have green eyes. The females (like this one) lack the blue coloring and have red eyes. This little lady is only about 2 inches long, but showed little fear of me. She even rested on my finger for a while. This was taken in my back yard in Rockaway, NJ, with a Nikon D3100, and a Nikon 85mm macro lens.
