Obelisk Position

I was out early this morning for my daily spider hunt.

Then I got side tracked by this dragonfly in its obelisk position. This position reduces the amount of sun/heat on the dragonfly.

Buffy and I went out for a loop walk of the backyard before the heat got too uncomfortable.

Well, we were too late, as this blue dasher dragonfly’s position indicates.

This is called the obelisk position. It reduces the amount of direct sunlight on the dragonfly’s body.
