Day Of The Dragonfly

I am out and about as usual to catch something amazing through the lens. The weather is warm and it is not raining at the moment and I noticed an excessive amount of dragonflies flying around. So I tried to catch shots of the different ones.

Dragonflies come in many colors and sizes.
