(Added Note: From looking at other photos, I think this is a female white-faced meadowhawk dragonfly)
I wish I knew what kind of dragonfly he is. He was hanging around the bushes by the front door, I think because it was shady. Yes, another hot day in Whoville.
After I took my Nikon Coolpix P510 out to search for bugs, I realized this was my first bug expedition with this camera. And it’s AUGUST THIRD!!! I bought it in March, but it hasn’t seen much action. It has 46x zoom, and I am pleased with the rather delicate shading and details of this dragon. They certainly aren’t overly attractive when viewed close up, but I find them intriguing.
Cooler weather is supposed to be on the way…I certainly hope so, anyway.
