Striped Meadowhawk #74
The sun is finally shining again, after days of rain and even a little frost -- one of the last chances of the season to watch dragonflies. This is a careful field sketch of one. The dragonfly kept returning to a nearby strand of dead grass, and even landed on my hand a half a dozen times. Very considerate! Each time I had another piece of anatomy I was wondering about. Note how only his front feet rest on the strand of grass. He holds on with little barbs on the other four legs.
