No Name Dragonfly

For some reason, I find dragonflies that I’m unable to identify.

I still enjoy them immensely.

This one liked the exposed perch of the copper trellis.

The wing veins look so delicate and intricate … and downright fascinating.

The dragonfly and damselfly numbers are low this summer. At least I can see a few daily, not like the butterflies … I haven’t seen one in the last few weeks.

It would fly out to capture tiny flying insects.

This angle shows all the details of its body except the dark tips of its wings.

This picture shows a lot of details of its anatomy. Interesting. I couldn’t find out what the parts are that I see in its head.

  2. I’ve seen more dragonflies here this year than I ever have, but I don’t know why. Butterflies seem plentiful too. Maybe it was the mild winter.
    You got some great shots of this one!
