female Blue Dasher

Wow!!! Now all I need are the little Dashers.  I spotted this female Blue Dasher at my sister’s place. Her pond is home to a lot of dragonflies. I havn’t seen either the Blue Dasher or the Amberwing since I took their pictures in my yard. I don’t have a pond and am surrounded by woods.

I love their faces, and their wings are so delicately made.female Blue Dasher 071cs

She’s a bit prettier than in the photo. I couldn’t get her to pose with the sun showing her off the best. Every time I moved she’d fly away. Her color is yellow and brown.female Blue Dasher 043cs

This is the male Blue Dasher. She has some of the yellow that he does, but she doesn’t have the blue.c 070cs

  5. These are absolutely gorgeous! The shots are very clear and the background colors really set them off nicely. She may not have shown you her best side, but she did pose very nicely for you. Good work.

  12. Your posts of late had me searching for dragonflies yesterday at the park. I saw some, but they never landed so that I could take a photo. I love the close-up of the female. Her wings really are intricate.
