Dragonfly Dance

Eastern Amberwing

We didn’t have to go far to to see an amazing creature yesterday.  He came to visit us in our backyard.  He flew away when we got too close and I hadn’t even taken a picture yet…

But he came back and stuck around for a photo shoot.  Don’t you just love his translucent orange wings?!  They are like cellophane.  See the orange wing shaped projection on the deck railing?  If he had been really cooperative I would have had him pose on white paper.


Check out this ballet pose!

    • This one was still big for a bug but smallish. The most amazing thing was its wing color. I might try and turn it into a craft : )
