Hi, love the blog. The osprey pics are really good. I love birds but am currently getting to know dragonflies, they are really pretty and can be really difficult to shoot well. I think urs is a 4 spotted chaser, although I'm not sure as I live in uk. Hope ur sightings list keeps growing :0)

Thank you so much for the compliments. I am not much of a bug person but I won’t miss an opportunity to shoot something when it presents itself. A friend of mine told me it was a painted skimmer. I don’t know about dragonflies so I am at the mercy of others for IDing them.

Side note, I went to England in the late 90’s. I loved it. Basic tourist stuff as I was in high school and with teachers but still, I want to go back one day. Well thanks again for the compliments.
