Dragonflies and Damselflies

All of nature is, of course, amazing. But dragonflies and damselflies are extra amazing. Not least because of their amazing ability to fly away just as I am about to take their photo. They also have an amazing ability to make me teeter dangerously close to the edge of ponds and lakes, and to be encountered in unseemly positions in an effort to get a decent shot of them (and to fly away once I am in just such a position). Despite all this, I love them, wait impatiently for them to appear every spring, and feel a deep gloom when their numbers fade in late summer and autumn.

By the end of autumn I adjust to the reality that the dragonflies and damselflies are gone for a few months. But I love the time that I spend with them, and hope you have enjoyed seeing them too.
