Blue-Eyed Darner Dragonfly in the Backyard

A beautiful but not unexpected visitor to the backyard was this mini-helicopter (aka Blue-Eyed Darner). Everything that needed to be in focus, was in focus! Dragonflies are a colourful and welcome addition to our garden–they keep the flies and mosquitoes at bay.

With its quartet of gossamer-like wings and bright blue-and-black banded colouration, this Blue-eyed Darner looks unreal–even against the blue of the summer sky.
