Stairway to Heaven - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)

Stairway to Heaven - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)
I photographed this blue dragonfly on a cloudless day at a nearby pond, which supports a large and varied dragonfly population. As I was walking along the edge of a wooded area, I came across this splendid dragonfly on this thorny branch just above my head. As I approached closer and closer, I discoved two other dragonflies, a blue and a green one, lower down on the same branch! :) Unfortunately, they were too widely separated to get into one shot, but I will post their photos in due course. This photo was taken in July 2013, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.
