The Yellow/blue contrast makes for a very attractive photo. I don’t remember seeing this particular kind of dragonfliy.
Thanks, Alain. The bright colour combination was what caught my eye as I was walking by. This is a female or an immature. You may have seen the male, which is red. It’s early in the season for meadowhawks.
Lovely shot! My honey bees love all kinds of salvia!
