Dragonflies at Rest

Dragonflies are cool creatures. On wings of gossamer they flit here and there, rarely stopping for a moment. From a distance they are beautiful, but on closer inspection they look like what they are: insects. Still, their different colored bodies and wings demand a closer look.

Over the weekend, I noticed the dragonflies just resting on the lilies. Mostly they seemed to like the spent buds the best. They begged to have their photos taken while in this uncommon state of repose. So, I give you Dragonflies at Rest.

lovely - the dragonflies and your pics
so glad i popped in!

Lovely photos!
I love dragonflies and they apparently love me, as they will often land on me and stay with me as I move around the yard.  When reading outside I often look up and there will be a dragonfly sitting on the rail watching me.
Some say that dragonflies are fairies in disguise…
