While trying to take photos of some smaller birds in my back yard, this dragonfly flew in. Although they are apparently a common dragonfly in North America, I had never seen one before. It perched on the top of a dead stump and stayed there for quite a while. It didn’t seem to be bothered by me getting closer to it. It is a very striking dragonfly.
