I was out trimming the hedges this afternoon when this dragonfly (or dragonbird, in the Goldilocks vernacular where everything that flies is a bird) came to land on a shepherd’s crook nearby. The dragonflies always seem to perch high when they are searching for their food, and after they dive after a bug, they come back to the same place while their search continues. So it makes it easy to photograph them and try to get really close freaky shots of their eyes.
Dyeyo says that this guy looks just like a helicopter. He does, doesn’t he?
