Dragonfly Wing Damage
It is starting to be the time of year when dragonflies start to show signs of wear & tear on their wings. It seems they must lead a rough life from the looks of wear on some of them. The featured image is a male Slaty Skimmer Dragonfly.

Summer is short for some.
Yes! It seems that way!
Wow, Reed, some of those wings are really shredded, yet somehow the dragonflies continue to carry on.
Yes! It is amazing that even with that much wing damage they still fly and are quite agile!
Dragonfly eyes just amaze me!
Yes they are amazing eyes! I will have to post some ultra closeup dragonfly eyes!
The blue dasher shots are particularly nice, Reed! Wonderful light and detail.
Thanks Belinda! They are fun to photograph!
