Our weather has been so hot and humid. The other week, we had a swarm of dragonflies going nuts around here! Just tons! Today, as we worked outside, it was finally comfortable enough to get outside for a bit, the dragonflies were flying around us like crazy! They are stunningly beautiful really! I have never seen them this close.....but today, they landed on my Rose of Sharon bushes and I was able to get some pictures! There are 3 on one shot , you can click on the pictures to see them bigger! The wings are just amazing aren't they, and look at the little fuzzies on their undside! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

You got some great pictures of the dragon flies. I have only seen a swarm of them one time in my life and it was when I was about 12 and remember it clearly! They were swarming all around but I haven't seen this since. I hope they didn't eat your roses!

OMG Patti, your photos are amazing!
I can't get over how "fine" the webbing is in their wings!
Thanks for sharing. Ü
