A week ago Sunday I made a brief trip to the McLindon Trails to look for dragonflies. The many acres of grass and fresh, clean water – both a pond and a fast flowing brook – make this place a haven for dragonflies.
I arrived under heavy, overcast skies, with thunder rumbling in the distance. As expected, many species were out in abundance, and Calico Pennants, in particular, were very abundant. In the short time I had before the rain settled in, I managed these few shots of this late spring / early summer dragonfly.
