Dragonfly After A Rainstorm...

Click on photo to enlarge © 2010 jim otterstrom

A showy thunderstorm rolled across the Bear River Valley here in Utah last evening providing us with a magnificent light show out the dining room windows at dinner time. Rain came and went through the night and we awoke to a brief downpour about six this morning. Wandering around the yard just before breakfast I came across this dragonfly lying in the grass. I picked it up and placed it on an old piece of wood for this photo. It was still alive but I'm not sure it will survive its drenching.
~postscript~
The above dragonfly dried out warmed up and flew away...

Not long before we left Portland a huge black dragonfly came through our open balcony door, did a circuit of the living room and flew back out. It was amazing.

You've taken a marvelous photo of this one.
