    Default Dragonfly

    It was chilly(68) this morning when I ventured out and this Dragonfly was sunning on a plant hook trying to warm up. He was so chilled that he didn't move when I was 3" away, usually you can't get within 3 feet of them. I love all of the veining on the wings. Gotta keep these guys around they eat mosquitoes.
