More Dragonflies

Yesterday they were kind of drab, but today they are all blue dragonflies playing among the pink roses.

Almost pretty enough to make you forget about the snow up the hill. (Like I know.) How far away is the snow? I'm a big fan of damselflies and dragon flies. They've shown up here in CA in recent weeks. Also, that's a damselfly in that photo. The dragonflies typically have their four wings spread when at rest.

Is a damselfly a girly-type dragonfly or a different bug altogether?

Different bug altogether. I'm no expert, but I got into keeping track of both visitors, reading up one them when I lived in Mass. The mature dragon fly has a bigger body and a different configuration of the wings than the damsel fly. I just did a quick search to find a single image comparing the two species. I didn't see one. But yeah, they hang on in the same areas, but they are different.

Neat! So the huge ones might be the only real dragons we get!

Yeah, that's it. I just posted a photo of a Red Meadowhawk dragonfly and one of my fave videos on the dragonflies as hunters.

I think we call them damselflies over here - the dragonflies are much chunkier.

Forgot to say - lovely colours! Thanks.
