The Dragonflies of Summer

It is the middle of winter and as the polar vortex threatens to return and make temperatures plunge and snow accumulate, I post these images of a much warmer time.

 Twelve-spotted Skimmer. I've been trying to get a good shot of one of these for a couple of years now. They always seem to allude me even though they are quite common here in eastern Massachusetts.

This was the year of the dragonfly here in eastern Massachusetts. Last year butterflies were everywhere. They disappeared this year. Instead, dragonflies were showing off along the shore of the lake near where I live.
