Friday Finds- Dragonflies in the Garden

While waiting for hummingbirds, I can be happy just watching the dragonflies flit around the garden. Behind our house, we have a stream leading into a pond which must be where all of these dragonflies live. Some are shy and fly away when I get up close, while others remain on the flowers. Sometimes its frustrating to have the zoom lens on the camera to get a hummingbird picture when there is a dragonfly that I can get up close to where a macro lens would work better.

The wings look so delicate, with the lacy look and the dragonfly above at least has intact wings compared to the dragonfly that I posted earlier this week. Lucky to have a variety of small wildlife to enjoy in the backyard.
