Still new, not ready to fly yet


here's the same dragonfly many hours later with his wings seperated...

The island hosted dozens if not hundreds of dragonflies, which I watched for an hour hunting smaller insects in front of me…I saw a mating pair of mayflies drifting by and saw a dragonfly snatch them up in mid air right in front of me…one was able to escape though…Getting a pic of these guys was proving impossible…they are far too active and careful, and I could not find them in hiding in the morning….but I did find this guy not yet ready to fly…this was my chance to get a photo 🙂
