Dragonfly

We have a small rock pond in our back yard. It is off the dining room and the deck that is off the living room. That side of the house (looking out over the pond and deck) is all glass. I was in the dining room when we first moved in and saw something flying around out there. Couldn't figure out exactly what it was because of the coloring until it landed and took a break. Amazingly, it stood still on the edge of the pond long enough for me to get close and snap this shot of it through the glass. Isn't it beautiful?

Yeah, and this picture is very pixelated because I had to reduce the file size on it. The real pic looks even better and the color of the dragonfly is just amazing.

I had never seen a red one until now and we have them in our backyard on the pond all the time now...even though there are no mosquitos to eat...haha.
