Well, autumn is upon us once again. One of the things that means here is cold mornings, which makes for a great time to photograph insects that otherwise are in constant motion. The cold makes them quite sluggish. I can relate. :)
This is a swamp darner, a type of dragonfly. They are very pretty, and one of the larger dragonflies in North America. Caught this one trying to catch some of the warming morning sun while perched on a coyote skull.
