I love this!
As if it’s sleeping or about to fly. 🙂 Great close up!
It flew away right after!
Wow, what an amazing shot!! I love the colour and the details you captured in his wings!
He is a beautiful creature. Thanks!
Looks a bit scary to me 😉 Great shot, I love the color of the dragonfly 🙂
Thanks Wolke. I don’t think I would have spotted him it he wasn’t red.
Oww…I want to eat it 😉
Great photo TBM
Thanks Kroten! He might be hard to catch 🙂
I haven’t seen in this colour, this is so beautiful photograph dear TBM, Thank you, with my love, nia
Thanks Nia. I loved his color.
Beautiful!!! I only see a few red dragonflies around our place, so I really like this photo! And I soooooo like dragonflies.
I haven’t seen many dragonflies at all so I was tickled to spot this one.
You have such a way with…photos.
Thank you for such a kind comment.
I have never seen a re dragonfly before!
I haven’t either! I was shocked to find him.
I love dragonflies – we sometimes get them here in the summer, but never this stunning colour…beautiful photo.
Thanks! I was surprised by his bright color.
Incredible pic! I am in awe….
i LOVE how you see the little guys, who are so often overlooked !!!!!!!
Thanks Jo! I always wonder about how many creatures I don’t see, but I am grateful for the ones I do see.
How beautiful! I always try to take pictures of colourful dragonflies but I am rarely quick enough!
I almost missed this one since he flew away when I snapped the photo.
I adore dragonflies! I’ve never seen one quite like this, though. Awesome!
Thanks! He was a great find.
Never seen a dragonfly that color…pretty amazing.
He is gorgeous…nature amazed me every day.
