Green Darner Dragonfly

It's a rare occasion, but every year our garden doubles as a way station
for one of the largest dragonflies you will see, a Green Darner.
We have never seen any other behavior but rest.
I am sure the other life stages of the fabulously colorful
insect must be amazing to watch.  Our limited time with our guest
is still and uneventful.  This of course makes for a wonderful opportunity
for photography.
So, without anymore rambling I offer you a moment with Anax Junius 
the Green Darner Dragonfly.



  1. Oh, he's beautiful! I also like the lizard that scurries up the fence at 1.28. Your back garden is an amazing place.

    1. Thanks, that is my favorite shot as well.

  2. What an amazing back yard quest!
