Several of you asked about those orange dragonflies I mentioned in my last post.
Here are a few photos I took this summer while I was visiting my parents in the Bay Area.
This dragonfly was resting on a branch above a waterfall in the yard, and I stealthily(?) managed to get close enough to take these shots with a new little digital camera I was playing around with....
Frankly, I didn't realize until I got home and put the photos on my computer, how close and amazingly clear these pictures were.... And yeah, there's no mistake: these dragonflies are REALLY TRULY ORANGE, aren't they?!?
