Wordless Wednesday: Dragonfly Season?

I recently went with my son and his baby girl to the park. While there, I came across so many dragonflies. Truly, I've never seen so many in one place. I could even just randomly aim my camera towards the sky, and the photo would pick up a dragonfly.

Each picture below has a dragonfly in it, and it's just a small amount of the pics I took (I had to have proof that there were so many, lol!). Can you see them all? Cool, right?

Wow, look at them all. And here I thought bug season was winding down.

I love dragonflies. I never hurt one. Ever. I'll go out of my way to make sure they are safely off our boat as sometimes they pay us a visit.

Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ☺

That is a lot of dragonflies. Is there water nearby?

They are so pretty. My parents used to have a pond, so they'd get them in their backyard. Otherwise I don't see a lot of them in Omaha.

Kristi Maloney said...

Oh! Very cool! Love your pics. of those dragon flies. Love that dragon flies are a friendly insect too! :)

Tamara Camera said...

Awesome! I had a dragonfly land on my dress this summer and I had a macro lens at the time so he looked like.. a dragon in the photos. They are very cool.

Pat Hatt said...

haha that last one looks like it is doing a hand stand. Must be something there that they all like

They aren't here anymore, but I imagine they hang around FL a lot longer than they do in IN :) I always love seeing them. I bet your granddaughter did too!

What a treat. I do love dragonflies.

Hi Rosey, you really got some amazing shots of the dragonflys!

Jessica said...

Dragonflies are very cool and are mythical or almost prehistoric looking?! There is such interesting symbolism associated with them.

FidoseofReality said...

These are beautifully captured images. I can imagine these framed as a summer reminder. Pretty!

I love dragonflies, always have. Many cultures believe they are harbingers of good fortune and long life. Perhaps you were being sent an encouraging message.

Well those both sound good to me. I'll take it. :)

mail4rosey said...

Not a drop. :) Weird, right? but cool just the same. :)

Some of the close ups were making me laugh. They look very expressive, lol. Who knew??

Holy Ghost Writer said...

I imagine they are all flying south now to avoid the cold

Secondary Roads said...

Is that dragonfly in that last picture doing inverted push ups?

~ Noelle said...

We have had many around here lately as well!!!!

mail4rosey said...

Some of those pictures were making me laugh. They look like they have so much personality, who knows what they're thinking about us, lolol!

mail4rosey said...

It's still nice and warm for them in our parts. :)

Cascia Talbert said...

Dragon flys are cool! Great photos.

That's something I haven't seen in a while so it was great seeing your pics today.

Lindsey Domer said...

These are beautiful photos! I don't think I have ever seen a dragonfly in real life before, believe it or not. :)

Stacy Uncorked said...

I love dragonflies! They're so cool! Apparently you must have some clean fresh water nearby, as they only 'hang around' the freshest/cleanest water. Or so I've been told. :) Great shots!!

Kristie said...

I think dragonflies are beautiful! That's neat there were so many in one place! They seem to be around more up here in MI as well, so it really must be dragonfly season! :-)

Reminds me of the Dragon Fly tri. These little buggers were everywhere.

I remember when I was in my childhood, I love caught up dragon fly but after a while I will let them fly again.

They definitely have a unique look about them. They stand out from lots of other insects.

Just beautiful! I've been noticing a lot of dragonflies lately all around.

Sojourner Williams said...

Lovely photos. It's hard to capture them because they move so much. I've seen a lot of dragon flies too.
