Copper Dragon Fly

Howdy Folks!! I’m sorry for the unannounced extended hiatus of Albuquerque Daily Photo. It’s a very long story that would just bore you to tears (and I wouldn’t want to do that) but I am back and looking forward to posting. It rained here for most of last night and it was awesome. It was cool and comfortable for sleeping … finally!!

Anyway, about the photo … this was the prettiest insect I have ever seen … if an insect can be pretty. It’s wings were amazing … the way they shimmered in the sun was awesome. And the bronze coppery color was gorgeous.

Given all the rain we have had here the vegetation is trying very hard to overtake the backyard. Yesterday I had some time and was cutting back a bush that had over night become a tree and this grasshopper was living it. He seemed a bit annoyed that I cut down his new condo but he quickly moved on to the condo next door.

He was kind enough to pose for a few photos before moving on!
