Dragonfly afternoon

This pair of huge dragonflies were bopping erratically all over our back patio this afternoon. I actually went back inside the house because I kept getting nailed in the noggin'. I didn't think I'd stand a chance capturing them so I stood in the doorway and just watched as they tore up the air space.

And then something changed and it felt like they just might take a little breather. So I ran to my office, grabbed the camera that was on my desk and charged back to the door to find them snugged down in a plant. They were so close to the door that I had to stay in the house.

They gave me a single frame.

I am happy.
