(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.
