These are just a few of the dragons that around Massachusetts in July. We will start out with two female Blue Dashers.
Male Slaty Skimmer. Dragonflies are voracious hunters. I’m amazed at what they can see. I was shooting at about eight feet and a mosquito was flying about ten inches from my ear. He spotted it and darted out, grabbed it an munched it down like it was popcorn.
