Blue Dragonfly with Yellow Water Lily

This little dragonfly patiently posed as I took pics
of it against the Yellow Nymphaea Mexicana water lily.

Absolutely incredible banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Okay, so arguably, this is perhaps a better banner for entomology.com than for garden.com... but I'm loving it! Fine pic and wonderful slice, Cal. Really "bien bonito" as the locals would say. I tip my hat to you.

Thank you for all the thumbs, acorns & encouraging comments, my friends. Smiling

Sorry I don't have the original image handy (though should! Rolling my eyes. ),
but here is a slideshow of the little blue dragonfly on a lotus bud.

And here is the yellow hardy lily, Mexicana.

Our pond is a dragonfly (and bee) magnet.

The dragonflies are great subjects.....it's like they are curious
about the big shiney eye (of the camera)....they light on e.g. a
lotus bud for several minutes.....fly away, and come right back.
