Dragonflies and damselflies are fascinating insects. Darrell Paige wrote, “It is obvious that spring has arrived with the continual traffic of Dragonflies cycling up and down North Fork Fuller Creek. There are a variety of colors: bright orange, blue, blue/black, stripped, and the yellow/black stripped Pacific Spiketail.
“One Pacific Spiketail decided to take a break and have a little quiet time on Lee Tate’s fingers, which provided me with the opportunity to snap a photo and see the intricate detail of the wings before it decided rest time was over and went back to cycling up and down the creek.”
I have never seen a Dragonfly, a living jewel, rest on someone’s fingers. That’s an amazing sighting. Thanks to Paige for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
