This shot was taken with a long telephoto from a lakeside deck. This is about as close as I could get this summer to the more colorful and interesting dragonflies. The mono-color dragonflies seem easier to find, in more abundance, and more willing to pose.
Dragonflies like this one hunt over water, and their eggs are placed in the water to hatch. That said this particular lily pad looks very much like a busy airport with airplanes getting ready to take off.
