The Dragonfly and the Butterfly
Had never seen a dragonfly with a red body until this morning. Went out to turn off the sprinkler that was watering the grass and this beautiful dragonfly was flying around me and then landed on a small rose bush. I ran in and got my camera and luckily he was still there when I returned. After doing some research, I believe it is an Autumn Meadowhawk. While clicking, clicking, clicking, one picture after another, along came a huge, beautiful butterfly. He landed on a branch of the yaupon tree and stayed there for about 3 minutes while I continued to click away.
Would probably see a lot more if I stayed outside more, but it's still much too hot. Looking forward to cooler weather.
