ever seen one of these?

I've been fascinated lately with the variety of dragonflies there are here - not your traditional glittery green ones either - these ones are really unique! Here are a couple pictures I managed to get at our house site the other day. How cool are these little guys? (And yes, that's a new watermark too.....) They look almost the same color in these pictures, but they're not - the one on the left is a reddish brown and the other is a deep red. When they land their wings "tick" down slowly - not sure why, but it's fun to watch! Their color patterns are very similar, now that I'm looking at them. Maybe one is a male and one a female? I don't know you tell........


  1. Wow, those are gorgeous!!! I love dragonflies, and that was as close to a theme as I got for our nursery. I may just have to break down and get one of your fab-o watermarks!

  2. How beautiful! I've never seen one like this - God sure made some beauties, didn't He? The colors are so striking!

  3. Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. What a special treat to get such great photos. Love your new watermark too.
