Wordless Wednesday—Blue Dasher

Blue Dasher (Pachydiplax longipennis)

From mid-Summer: July 19, 2017
In the meditation circle: Blue Dasher (Pachydiplax longipennis) on Cleome hassleriana (Spider Flower)

The spider-like flowers with protruding stamens make the Blue Dasher appear fairylike.

      Thanks Christina. I’ve taken a lot of pictures this summer I just haven’t had time to share. The garden is overgrown and weedy but perhaps it’s made it even more attractive to insects and birds.

      Hi Susan, it’s one of North America’s most commonly sighted dragonflies, but I personally haven’t seen all that many. This one was nice to cooperative while I tried for a photo.
