Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Easy Pickings

You know when the best time to catch dragonflies is?  When they’re swarming!  Check it out:

Anax junius

Green darner, Anax junius

I caught this one on the first swipe.  A miracle!  Then I let him go.  I really just wanted to see if I could catch one, and having proved that, I didn’t really need to keep him.  What a stunning animal!

  1. What a neat picture. Great color and lots of detail!

  2. He doesn’t look too happy to being petted like that. :-)

    • Perhaps not! But at least I didn’t gas him and add him to my collection. And he bit me as I let him go. :)

      • He bit you? So, I was right! By the way, I photographed a huge back moth last night. It posed on my driveway’s ceiling. I have to download the photo and then blog about it so can have a look, if you want. I wonder what kind it would be!

  3. Here it is, I have blogged about the gigantic black moth I saw. :-) http://mcolmo.wordpress.com/2012/10/11/giant-black-moth/
