Common Green Darner

Once in a while you get lucky and find one of the larger dragonflies shortly afer it has emerged. At this point in their life cycle they usually have to spend time perched, so that their wings can get into shape, which gives you an opportunity to get some real close close ups. I photographed this common green darner in Como Park.
