    Out chasing dragonflies but it was too late in the day, harsh light and breezy. Gave up on getting a nice shot and went for a fun perspective. This guy was fairly cooperative while I crawled around on my belly!

    Sorry you missed them, Tom. I've been out every day for the past 10 days and autumn is happening fast. Last week there were TONS of them, lots of fall flowers, lots of monarchs. Every day more blooms wither, fewer butterflies and dragonflies.

    We'll get to shoot some pretty fall color soon, hopefully.

    Thank you, folks. The dragonflies are on the way out here, too, as fall sets in with cold nights and short days.

    I was never much on dragonflies.... until I started chasing them around! Sort of an addictive practice, to be sure. Started too late this year but I'll be ready for the little flying machines come next spring.

    Just another obsession brought into my life courtesy of the Cafe members :)
