My real hobby: dragonfly photography.

He is/was a US Army Chaplin and had been all over world and off duty would venture out find these sleek mosquito hunters. The last assignment I recall was South Korea before my online focus changed. A very neat hobby and additional pictures would be enjoyed. But please watermark them, otherwise you will loose credit which is yours. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I love dragonflies, and they love me. We have a symbiotic relationship whenever I'm outside, and especially while kayaking. I apparently produce whatever it is (CO2, body heat, pheromones) that attracts mosquitoes in ultra high concentrations because I always get an exponential number of bites compared to anyone with me. I wish that was an exaggeration, but it isn't- the little buggers love me.Luckily, that also seems to attract the dragonflies, and they often fly in formation with my kayak, often landing on my hat or the boat deck to rest a bit before taking off again. It really is kind of cool to see dozens of these winged protectors flying around me, often keeping an almost exact pace with my boat, knowing their lunch isn't far away!Plus they are graceful and very beautiful, and a lot of fun to watch.I'm glad to see others appreciate them as much as I do, and your pictures are gorgeous!Def
My dragonfly photograph collection numbers over 10,000 so I won't be posting them all .
