Common Green Darner

Photographing flying dragonflies boils down to dumb luck. On Sunday, Erika and I visited the Northfield Garden Club’s annual garden tour. This Common Green Darner patrolled a water feature at one of the gardens. I only got one shot off, and to my amazement, the image is more or less in focus.

Elsewhere in this blog, I have written about green darners. They tend to be migratory and serve as a major food source for kestrels and martins. These dragonflies, in turn, consume mosquitos and other arthropods.
