A few more dragons & damsels from lower and higher elevations in the Southwest:

1. Powdered Dancer female (Argia moesta) patrolling a rainwater puddle in the heart of the Mojave Desert




2. Sooty Dancer female (Argia lugens) along the banks of the Virgin River in Hurricane, UT




3. Pale Snaketail male (Ophiogomphus severus) near the banks of the Animas River in Farmington, NM




4. One male among millions of Boreal Bluets (Enellagma boreale) monopolizing Regan Lake at 9000ft elevation near Shotgun Mountain in Colorado




5. Boreal Romance




6. Messy Eater: this male BB carefully helicoptered its way through the dense grass, then pounced on a moth climbing up a grass stalk. It took less than a minute to dismantle its prey and scatter bits of moth wing everywhere.




7. Careful eater: another BB male snacking more discreetly on a plant bug.



All taken with a65 + Sigma 70 2.8 macro

Coming from Australia, this was completely new to me: a blue/black body and opaque black wings. Photographed at Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia, using a99 and SAL70200G @200mm, f8.0. 1/90 second, ISO 100.

Were lots of dragonflies out and about but all I had were my quite versatile but far from optimal Minolta MD 35-70/3.5.
