"Miss Scarlett! Miss Scarlett!...

(And you, Miss, are no lady)
...I don't know NOTHIN' 'bout makin' no pesto!"
Can you believe this dragonfly? She just sat there on the basil for a long time, and let me get very close to her with my camera. There was a storm coming our way; I guess she was hunkering down.
Ok, so I have zero idea whether this dragonfly is male or female. But whatta looker.

Wow. I have never had anything like that in my veggie patch. Glad you got a shot of it.

It is a good year for dragonflies! I've seen several kinds that I've never seen before. My favorite so far was bronze-colored with clear wings with strong black bars across them.
