Uprooted Magnolia

Blue, Red and Gold

Posted in Nature, Photography by leahyetter on August 1, 2011

I braved the heat and went for a short hike this weekend to hunt for turkey feathers.
Instead I found and abundance of dragonflies.

They are everywhere! We have blue dragonflies.

And red dragonflies.

He’s getting ready to take off in this shot, notice the busy wings. The red ones seem to be the most skittish of all the dragonflies. I tried to shoot them last summer but could never get one to sit still.

But this summer there seems to be a lot more red ones than in the past and they followed me all around the meadows.

And last but not least, the very patient and ham for the camera, the golden dragonfly.
