It might not have been the prettiest of colours, but this dragonfly stood still long enough for me to get some pretty good photos. Not only did it sit for a while, but even smiled for the photo (well not really, its mouth parts just give that impression). If you Google “dragonfly faces”, you get quite a selection of adorable dragonfly closeups showing you the different expressions of various dragonflies, some are very happy and others are quite grumpy looking. It’s an odd sight considering a dragonfly face is not something many of us get to see, especially since they’re mostly whizzing around at top speeds between 30-60 km/h (19-38 mph).

Its always good when and insect sits still enough to get a good photo. I have notices several different colors of dragonflies. Great photos! Thanks for sharing.
Yet again on the “pass by” … Hope you’re fine, between wings of dragonflies and among all kinds of creatures!
