I love how the sun shining on them made them somewhat irridescent!
After dark, I went outside to get rid of some garbage, and I happened to notice a dragonfly on its back on the doorstep outside the garage. I flipped it over to see if it could still fly, and wouldn't you know, I managed (unintentionally) to get it to fly into the garage (toward the lights, of course). Here it is on the ceiling:
I chased it around a bit, trying to get it back outside. I turned off the garage lights and turned on the outside light, but it didn't help. Finally I managed to get it onto the broom and back outside.
It stayed on the broom, not willing to fly in the dark, so I worked it onto my finger for some better photos.
It was quite colorful!
And big! These were about the biggest dragonflies I've ever seen.
Pretty or ugly???
