Worn Carolina Saddlebags

Carolina Saddlebags, Guana River Reserve, St. Augustine Florida

As I said in yesterday’s Day Poem, there were hundreds of Carolina Saddlebags dragonflies around the Education Building at Guana River Reserve in St. Augustine Florida, and I counted at least 50 over the highways between Jacksonville and there. What I did not say, is that most were migrants, last year’s well worn individuals, coming back for another season in our temperate climate. This is the only one that I caught resting in over an hour of watching them, and, as you can see, it is well worn. Sony RX10iv at 600mm. Program mode. 1/1000th @ f6.3 @ ISO 100.
