Dragonflies In Our Garden


Couple of dragonflies that I got pictures of. I think the green one was trying to court the string of dragonfly lights. It stayed there for quite awhile.
This guy hung out on the underside of our walkway for most of the day.

    Love the photos of the dragonflies. We get mostly the blue dragonflies up here in British Columbia, CANADA. Love to see the variety of colours that are down south.

    When I lived in Lynchburg, VA I saw them a lot, along the James River. Green, Blue, mostly. Would sit on my fishing pole. Granny called them Snake Doctors. Since coming to Richmond I see mostly black ones. They were hunting gnats. Would skim the grass to get them to fly up then grab them. Also been greeted by one. He flew up to windshield of car and just hovered there for a few seconds and them flew off.
