Blue Dasher Dragonfly

Taking the camera out to shoot some lotus flowers, my partner in crime Cuttidad was keeping herself busy with dragonflies. The images she was getting were great, so I joined in the fun and grabbed my large lens since those little guys tend to keep their distance.




What I didn't notice until reviewing the images, was the "screened" eyes. How cool! (click on this image to see the "screen" up close.)
