Bug Eyes

Dragonflies are interesting creatures. On this day, I found blue ones. My favorite shot is the one featuring his “bug eyes.” For some reason, he looks friendly to me.

I think the dragonfly in the first photo is a “blue dasher.” One nice thing about them that I recently learned is that their favorite food is mosquito larvae. Yay! I say we need more blue dashers. I think the other two dragonflies are called “widow skimmers.” Where they got that name is a mystery to me.
