I've spent quite a bit of time chasing these around trying for a photo. Unfortunately the rest of these critters have not been as cooperative as that first one. Maybe they are camera shy? They are now mostly gone for this season so I've snitched this picture from Black Water Photography. He has a whole lot of fantastic images. Take a look!

We've been working on a lifestyle improvement plan. One of the items on our list is to explore the various parks and trails that are so close to us. Sunday we tried out the Guadalupe Trail in San Jose. We started on the trail and ended up downtown without ever walking on the road. How cool is that?!
When we finally emerged from under the bridges we were in a tiny paved park with picnic tables and steel dragonfly statues.
Seeing these dragonflies in person, and they are not uncommon here, makes one of the sequences in this video a bit more understandable. Sorry for the ad at the beginning, youtube is not what it once was. :(
Skip to 3:21 if you aren't a fan.
It appears I'm not the only one impressed by the scale of these things.
Have a great week if I don't get back to you sooner
