The dragonfly in the sun.


As the temperature drops,  fewer and fewer insects are to be seen. However, as soon as the sun is higher in the sky, and that its rays illuminate the surroundings, all sorts of flying insects take to the air. Dragonflies are one of my favourite, most notably because of the various colors that they show, especially when in the sun’s rays. This one was flying along with another when it decided to land on a shrub. I slowly crept towards it and took several pictures, getting closer as much as I could. One must not forget that these dragonflies are as big as an average index finger
