Common Whitetail and Blue Dasher dragonflies

25 09 2012

This is my first-ever photograph of two different kinds of dragonflies on the same perch! The bottom one is a Common Whitetail dragonfly (Plathemis lydia) and the top one is a Blue Dasher dragonfly (Pachydiplax longipennis). Photographed at Huntley Meadows Park; the marsh water was low and very muddy in color

I love all of your photographs, but expecially those of dragonflies. . .they are the symbol for my middle son who passed by his own hand from schizophrenia. . .I do not cry any more when I see them. . .I smile and say, “Hello John Michael!!” : ) =^,^=

Gorgeous! I adore dragonflies. I always think they are a blessing when they cross my path.

Hi Kathryn! For some reason I seem to have become obsessed with photographing them this season!
