Garden Predator 2 - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)

Garden Predator 2 - Vancouver, British Columbia (Explored)
Dragonflies are frequent visitors to my vegetable garden. They often perch on my bamboo poles waiting for their next meal. The photo was taken in August 2013, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.

Beautiful shot of this pretty skimmer. It is interesting how they return to their favorite perch again and again. The ones on our pond "argue" over the best roosting places.
