Camera Critters

Repeat message on all meme's: For those who don't know, I'm pre-dating posts for a while as we're getting ready for son's wedding on June 27th. I will be back to visiting blogs again between two and three weeks from now. Thank you for all your good wishes to the bride and groom and to me. You make this happy time in our lives even happier and I appreciate your messages more than I will ever be able to put into mere words. You guys are the greatest!

Camera Critters was created by Misty Dawn and hosted by Misty and Tammy. You can find other critter photos by clicking here.

We are again on our walk near The Old Stone Bridge in Manassas. I spotted a very slight movement on a tree trunk as I walked by. It was a dragonfly.
It is a Common Whitetail or Long-tailed Skimmer. I've never had a chance to get up to one this close before and was surprised to see him as still as could be on the trunk of the tree. According to Wikipedia he is a mature adult male with a white abdomen.

Now my flowers is up - I had a terrible head ache this morning but now I got some flowers up.

It id difficult to see the insects for time to time and it is also difficult to know the name - good to have Wikipedia.
