I see… Red

Some recent posts have grabbed my attention with their lovely red images and it prompted me to put together a “red” post. This first photo which I came across this morning is the one that really galvanised me into action! Its simply magnificent!

Thank you very much to contributing photographers! All images used with permission.

      1. The blue and red is a wonderful combination and it is such a joy to see these colorful little dragonflies starting in September, at a time when many of the summer dragonflies are starting to disappear. FYI, this species has a maximum length of about 38mm.
