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!

Great macro shots Kathy. Dragonflies are not always easy to photograph, you have done well!
Thanks…These guys made it easier by sitting still!
Wow Kathy! Love the alien dragonfly! Keep that camera close – you get great shots!!!
Thanks…seems like there’s all kinds of critters flying around this summer!
Clapping and bowing 👏👍🎨😀
WOWZA! Love your dragonfly photos! I saw a black and white one on the lake today. I think it is like your first photo. 😊
The second dragonfly looks as if he’s wearing a motorcycle helmet! 🙂
I love dragonflies, and not only because they eat mosquitoes and midges.
