Default At The Risk of Causing Dragonfly Overload

It has been so hot here lately the dragonflies have just popped up all over. At least, all over the places I walk. so here are two from yesterday and one from today. FZ150.

Variegated Meadowhawk. A rather uncommon one in Chicagoland.

Calico Pennant. This one is just over an inch long and I used the LC55 close-up lens. And the flash as it was very cloudy. (It rained soon after shot was taken.)

Halloween Pennant. These are so delicate they flutter in the breeze, but they can fly in strong winds.

Never can have too many DFly shots especially when they look like this. Great job of catching the landing in #1 and the last one is excellent.

Enjoyed viewing.

Is it common to have this many variety in your area?

There are lots more in the area than these. Some come earlier and some later, and some I never see as they are inland and I do most of my walking along Lake Michigan or within a few miles of it. This was a slow year but in the last week or so I have picked up ten new species.

Superb shots. In Egypt, one can rarely find colored dragonflies.
Thanks for sharing.
