Dragonflies and a Fiery Skipper

As I was getting ready to head out for a walk this evening, I saw this dragonfly just begging to have his picture taken.  They are such cool looking creatures.

Then, after I had walked a ways, I saw this Fiery Skipper (what a feisty name!) sipping at a Coneflower.

And what should I encounter upon returning home, but another dragonfly, more than happy to pose while I snapped a few photos.  I think this one looks a bit on the alien side.

I am learning to always carry my camera; you never know who might show up along the way!

    WOWZA! Love your dragonfly photos! I saw a black and white one on the lake today. I think it is like your first photo. 😊

  5. The second dragonfly looks as if he’s wearing a motorcycle helmet! 🙂

    I love dragonflies, and not only because they eat mosquitoes and midges.
