Craig, that is one beautiful dragonfly!! How lucky you were to get such a perfect picture of it. I checked my little book and see they don't appear here in Nova Scotia, and was surprised to see that the female is more beautiful than the male, not that the male isn't handsome! ~karen

Some interestingly coloured Dragons on your side of the pond Craig. FAB.

Nice shot! It's interesting to see the different species of dragonflies that you have. According to my little Dragonflies of Alaska book, there are only 30 species in Alaska, while you have 170 species in Florida.

I seldom get to see these but like to see more. They are so interesting in shape and colors.

I'm not getting the pictures from the Eastern Pondhawk or the Four spotted Pennant. Perhaps it's happening on my side as one other person's blog's pictures don't always come in either.
Maybe a setting on my computer?

I came by from Coy's blog and just wanted to say how much I enjoyed viewing your dragonfly photos. Dragonflies are a relatively new fascination for me--this is the first year I have been able to get any decent photographs. They are amazing creatures.

Awesome how they have four wings! Going to do research on why and learn about their flying mechanics. Inspiring!
