0 degrees centigrade and this dragonfly is sunning itself in the Marsh Cinquefoil field this morning.

    • When I shot this image, at 1.25 pm on Saturday, I guessed the air temperature to be around 5 degrees C. The dragonfly made a few short circular flights, landing back on the log, and then flew out of sight. It appeared alert – it was definitely aware of me – rather than dopey. The log end it rested on faced roughly east and upwards, pointing almost directly at the sun. There were also quite a few gnat/midge hatches along the riverbank that morning.

      The marsh is full of surprises, Mike. 🙂
