Red-Eyed Man ~ Camera-Critters #180

Another "lifer" for me!
I had never seen nor photographed a male Meadowhawk dragonfly.
I had, however, photographed a female Variegated Meadowhawk.

Well, last weekend, while at the pond (shocking, I know),
I saw a red dragonfly, and I immediately knew what it was.
We played a game of Tease...
it's kinda like "Tag", but the dragonfly is always it,
and lets you get just close enough to lift your camera
and then it flies away.

We played Tease for quite a while.
Then, finally, it let me have my wish...

You got one! How sweet it is! My dragon/damsel ID books just came in the mail this morning. I'm beyond excited. I blame it on you. :P
