Well, he came back the next day- or a friend did! This fellow's lower left wing was damaged but he was very photogenic and not too camera shy. I LOVE dragonflies! I felt really honoured to have him share my garden chores with me.
This is pretty close up and his injured wing does not show but look at how gorgeous he is! Must figure out what kind he is!
There he is , in all his glory. LOVE him!
We need to watch when we are out and about. Look , for sure, but above all - SEE! See and appreciate! It is such a lovely world when you pay attention! Enjoy.
