Blue Dasher perching on Cardinal Flower

Now you see it, now you don’t. Huh? I was so focused on composing the photo of a Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis) I never noticed a male Blue Dasher dragonfly (Pachydiplax longipennis) perching on the flower in Photo 1 of 2. Embarrassing!


Habitat: Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA.

Tech Tips: BorderFX, a free plug-in for Apple Aperture, was used to add a text watermark to the photos.
