Dragonflies and Damselflies: Up Close and Personal

April 4th, 2020 by Michael Dyet

Hmmm, if they could speak our language, what would they say as I snap their photo?

The second in my “Up Close and Personal” posts offering a brief escape to the beauty of nature as we remain in stay-at-home lockdown. Today I am playing caption that photo just for the fun of it.

Black-tipped Darner

Beat it. I’ not sure what this gnarly thing is that I caught, but it’s mine and I’m not sharing it.

Blue-fronted Dancer Female

Houston, we have a problem. There are some crazy craters in this funky green moon.

Mating Canada Darners

Coitus interruptus. Do you mind? We’re kind of busy here.

Delta-spotted Spiketail

She’s always late! I’ll wait another 5 minutes and then I’m out of here.

Eastern Amberwing

Yes, I’m posing. It’s hard to be humble when you’re just plain stunning!

Lilypad Clubtail

All the greenery around here and I had to land on a prickly thistle. Where’s a lily pad when you need one.

Orange Bluet

Yes I’m a Bluet, but I’m orange. Do you have a problem with that? Well, do you?

Beauty can be a contagion too. No social distancing here. Get up close and personal. It is allowed.
