Anyone who has tried to photograph dragonflies will tell you they are very camera shy. I manged to sneak up to these two on the tomato cages, but I couldn't get any closer.
This fellow wasn't any more receptive.
But I see many of them everyday. I heard someone call a large group of dragonflies a pleat. An interesting turn off phrase to be sure. I hope we have many pleats of dragonflies all summer to combat those wretched mosquitoes.
