Obelisk Position

The weather was a high 91 degrees, with a strong south wind blowing.

(Which means the quality of the pictures isn’t the best. I’m not a fan of temperatures over 90.)

This dragonfly spent most of its time in obelisk position

to reduce the amount of direct sunlight on its body.

I found another dragonfly in the obelisk position at noon today.

I assumed it was after a tiny bug every time it flew a loop out and back to its perch.

  2. I wish I could get in that position. We’ve had more 90+ days than I’ve ever seen, along with oppressive humidity. Stay cool!
