Let me just say....Confusion reigns my brain!! Just when I think, I've got it....I don't! I really need to study my guide book more...I just wanted to start posting my dragons since I haven't posted all summer. This whole I.D. process is very difficult for me(must be getting old), frustrating as well. I truly would hate to give out the wrong identification.
Update...Many thanks to Larry in providing the correct I.D. for me.
The first two photos are an inmature male Common Green Darner.
The next four photos are of a male Black-Tipped Darner.
I, like many of you I am sure, love the beauty that nature has to offer. I am originally from the Cleveland, Ohio area..."transplanted" here to a small country town just southeast of Canton, Ohio. I thought it may be nice to share some of what I experience here everyday at what my husband and I call..Wishnik Woods. To sit on our dock and watch all the dragonflies play tag and do their acrobats for hours couldn't make me happier(but who has the time for that?). I enjoy gardening and in my photos you'll see many up close and personal shots. I thank God everyday for my husband, family and our dream come true. Our little piece of paradise is not a showplace by any means, just a simple cabin nestled back in the woods, the place we call home. In a nutshell, a little of this and a little of that is what you'll find here in Wishnik Woods!
