Blue Dasher

Blue Dasher, SMHC drainage ponds, Kennebunk Maine

The little Blue Dasher is one of the most attractive of dragonflies, and one of the most common in summer here in Southern Maine. This year in particular it seems to dominate the drainage ponds at the Southern Maine Health Care campus here in Kennebunk. I am not sure there are more Blue Dashers…perhaps just fewer of other species. And, of course, the other thing about Blue Dashers is that they pose for pictures so nicely…unlike many of the other species flying right now. Sony RX10iv at 600mm equivalent.
