Saturday

Saturday Dragons......Sort of

Well, not actually a dragon, but my first dragonfly
of 2008!
I think that means Spring is really here!!


He looks metallic green with light blue on his tail.
This is the same shot as above, I just rotated it to the right so you
could seem him horizontally. He actually landed vertically, as the
first shot shows. I was so excited that these shots turned out.
This guy was really TINY!
(click on the last pic to enlarge....it really makes a difference)
Happy Saturday Everyone!
PS - If anyone can identify this guy, please leave a comment! It would
be VERY much appreciated!!

Hi Kerri
It's called the 'Common Bluetail'
Ischnura senegalensis

Have a look HERE

We were looking at the same things this week...I was shooting dragonflies too. I believe this little guy is either a Zebra Longwing or an Eastern Pondhawk. Lest you think me so smart, I just saw a sign about dragonflies posted along the walk at Green Cay Wetlands. The orange spotted ones are definitely Halloween Pennants.

Great photos Kerri. Such delicate little creatures. I love their little maneuvers and tricks they play amongst the leaves and flowers. Fun to watch.

They do make for wonderful flyfishing as well! =)

Wow, great shot. With Spring there are more exciting things for us all to capture.

The first one, congrats!

Mary said...

Great shots, Kerri. It's a damselfly and I think "Bluetail" is the name. I'm eager to see them return to my pond!

That's lovely--but I can't put a handle on it.
Just a wonder to appreciate on a warm day...

I have always loved dragonflys - they are interesting to look at and do such great things! Your dragonfly is unlike any I've ever seen - the colors are magnificent!
