It took me a couple days and a few hours of patience to get this picture. The area behind my parent's house has turned into a very nice place for Nature photography. Vernal pools have taken over the dirt bike paths with the help of all this rain we have been getting up here in Massachusetts. This one species caught my eye, with its bluish body and beautifully marked wings. It was hard to get a good picture because they were always moving. Anytime I got close enough to take a picture, the dragonfly would get either spooked by me or provoked by another dragonfly. I had to do some editing, and I hope you like it. Thank you for viewing.

Wonderful detail on this little Dragonfly Chris, perhaps a little tightly framed at the bottom but that is my only complaint.
Well done my friend Phil

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

The young do not know enough to be prudent, and therefore they attempt the impossible- and achieve it.
