Orange Dragonfly


One dragonfly came landing right on the handle of garden tool, and for the life of me, I snapped, snapped, clicked, and clicked! I had to delete them all, except for one. It flew away, and came back, still parked on the top of my garden tool as if it knew I wanted desperately for a decent picture.

This was the only orange dragonfly I saw this year around our yard, and it was such a sweet treat.

Great job! I don't think I've ever seen an orange one before.

Lucky you! I can get butterflies to pose for me, but dragonflies are difficult to spot. This is a brilliant colour.

I saw two dragonflies today, as a matter of fact, and mating at that, but I've never seen an orange one before. Swung by your blog via Debbiedoo's Newbie Linky Party. Thanks for sharing and stop by my blog anytime!

Cool shot, what a cutie!

I love dragonflies more than butterflies simply because they are more evasive. hahaha

oh, love your shot Icy, especially just like what Ruthi said, they are very evasive.

Hi,
You really like dragonfly,don't you? So the dragomfly seems to understand you like it. I watch many red dragonflies around here,but not orange one.
Thank you for a nice shot.

I do not believe I have ever seen an orange one. You certainly caught it well.
