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!
