Macro & Mellow Yellow Monday *Eastern Amberwing*


MellowYellowMondayBadge

Maybe I should make a badge for "Dragonfly Monday" since it seems I keep posting dragonflies on Monday for Macro Monday and Mellow Yellow Monday. hehe That's an idea though... hmmmm... Dragonfly Monday, Butterfly Tuesday, Bee Wednesday... LOL I think I'm too obsessed with bugs. Oh well, I guess I could have worse obsessions!

This is a male Eastern Amberwing dragonfly. Amberwings are smaller than most other dragonflies. In fact, the first time I ever photographed some, I thought they were baby dragonflies. The Amberwings are really pretty, especially when the sunlight hits their wings, because the wings shine a beautiful amber color, which, I'm sure, is how they got their name.

Wow, I'm impressed, you even know the name of your dragonfly! I got a few shots of dragonflies tonight, they were flitting all about our front porch. I'll post some next week, but unless I do some research, I'm afraid I don't know what kind they are! I do know we have lots around here.
