Dragonfly season is in full swing now here in Arizona. Betsy and I went to the Gilbert Water Ranch a few days ago, and dragonflies were everywhere. One of the most common dragonflies there were the Blue Dashers, which are also one of the most photogenic of dragonflies. Here are a couple pictures from our visit to the Water Ranch.
Not only are these dragonflies great for photography, they are also incredibly widespread. We've seen them everywhere we've gone dragonflying, including Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, Texas, and Florida.
