Yesterday, August 28, 2021 I came across another Eastern Amberwing (Perithemis tenera), a female this time. She was very interested in the budding zinnia, which in turn called my attention to the flower’s intricate outline and pattern at this stage.
For comparison here the male Eastern Amberwing seen on August 22, 2021.
A wonderful way to start a Sunday morning. Thanks

Thanks Jane and wonderful for me to hear from you today!
Your photos have been outstanding. I have been disappointed with my new camera and someone suggested I look for a better lens.
Thank you so much. I have been using iPhone 11 Pro Max for nearly 2 years and like it a lot. Never mastered manual controls on fancier-type cameras and I’ve been happy with this one.
Wow, I need to steal my husband’s iPhone. I have the smaller one without the good camera.
Switch for a day and he’ll never get it back! 😀
I love those patterns too, on the insect and the flower.
Aren’t they interesting? Looks like Nature inked around the edges of the flower. Lots of cool patterns in nature.
Nice shots, Susie. I do admire that layers on zinnia buds, nature’s perfection!
Thanks Eliza. Yes, nature does good work! Always interesting.
Nature delivers little miracles every day, if we have our eyes open to see them.
I need to remember this Kris! Thanks.
Beautiful captures! I love it when they just sit there, still, as if they’re wanting their pic taken!
Thanks Tina! If only they would all sit for portraits!
Naturally the female is prettier. 😉 Lovely shots!
😀 Yes, she is a beauty! Thanks Cathy.
