Bees and Dragonflies

The bees have been buzzing and the dragonflies have been darting around the yard this week.  While taking a picture of the white morning glory, the bee buzzed up, landed on the edge, then dove in completely oblivious to my presence.

If you look closely at the hibiscus bloom, you can see the bee.   One click of the camera and he flew away.

This copper colored dragonfly with iridescent wings was very cooperative during his photo shoot.

I never realized how many colors dragonflies came in.    This rebel was sporting a blue head.

I wasn’t able to tell the color of this dragonfly.   He flew into my life as quickly as he flew out.  Perhaps we’ll meet again.

Bees scare me but I could sit and watch dragonflies all day long. As you said, there are so many different colors and kinds.

I think dragonflies are so cool looking, but my Mother thinks they are ugly! I've never heard of anyone who didn't like dragonflies!

Beautiful photos!
