Dragon Wings

Dragon Wings

I had a lovely afternoon in the garden as I was visited by half a dozen of these red dragonflies, known as Painted Grasshawks. There was one particular bush that they were drawn to and resting upon. So while there was still a little light left in the day I captured some memories of their visit.
