Oliver Mill Park, Part 2

The day I went was partly cloudy and very humid.  It even started to drizzle a little when I left.  







This is the first time I've ever seen shiny green dragonflies with jet black wings and most of the time I spent in the park was following them around till I finally got a good photo.

 Joe Pye weed and cattails.

That's one more thing crossed off the local bucket list!

  9. Not sure if that kind of slender dragonfly is called a damselfly. Might help you find out more about it if it is.
