2012 Picture of the Week (24/52) – Red dragonfly

On Friday, my wife and I went walking around Shonan Lifetown, which isn’t very far from where we live, and we went to some parks.  In one park, we saw a very interesting insect.  I’ve seen plenty of dragonflies, but never a red one before.  Take a look.

Ready for takeoff!

    you have done something I have only been able to dream about. What great luck that bridge is an excellent contrast to the red dragon fly. Jealousy is the only word that comes to mind when I see this.

    Dragonflys are bad ass!!

    • I’d never seen one before, so I was quite lucky to see it, and take a picture. But it’s not a bridge. It’s the edge of a pond in a park 🙂

  2. That is one cool dragonfly and the red is so strong and vivid. Great capture!
