Dragonfly/Critters

Red dragonfly perched atop last year's cattail

Yesterday afternoon we visited a marsh and among the wildlife there were butterflies and dragonflies. Here you get to see one of the handsomest dragonflies, looking like he's barely hanging on. Truth be told he knows perfectly well what he's doing. He'd fly off to catch a munchy and then return to this perch to wait for another tidbit to fly his way.
