This time of year there are millions of these in the marshes. Marsh grass can grow to be much taller than a person, and the top seed heads are covered with Dragonfly’s.

There are so many we have raptors, hawks, that survive on catching them in flight. Amazing to watch, a decent size hawk catching untold numbers in mid air.

These are not the kind of photographs I typically take but when there are so many it’s hard to not take a few. There are photographers much better at this than me, but the odds were with me of getting a shot based on the sheer numbers.

  1. Keep photographing the dragonflies, Ted. This appears to me to be a male Blue Dasher dragonfly, which is one of the most common species where I live. I noticed that there is some wing damage. I have been amazed in the past to see how well dragonflies manage to fly with even greater damage to their wings.
