Today the Dragonflies Came in Red, Gold and Blue (Photos)

Today I was off  Okinawa proper and hit some of the outer islands.  The camera is downloaded and recharging for the next trip and there are a few hundred photos waiting development. 


I'll just post these three dragonflies in the order they were photographed.

The photos were taken at the base of a waterfall on Miyagi Island.

The red dragonfly showed up first.

Then, the gold one.


Last but, not least the blue dragonfly posed for me with the water in the background.

If you had to choose a color for a dragonfly which one would you go for the red, golden, or blue ?

These are beautiful! I don't think I've seen dragonflies this colorful.

Stephanie,
There are probably some in your neck of the woods. Just have a look around on a sunny day near some fresh water.

I'm with Stephanie. For the only dragonflies I can remember ever seeing were green, but I've never been to Okinawa, nor anywhere in the far east.

FishHawk,
Well, I guess I'll have to see what other colors I can find to keep you entertained. I've got some black ones but, didn't like the background colors. Hang-in, I'll getterdun.
