Scarlet Darter Dragonfly

Another walk in my garden with camera in hand, looking for what will surprise me today. Look what I found perched on one of my garden stakes. He was just sitting there resting and looking around. I think he saw me coming over with my camera. I don't think dragonflies are shy at all. At least the ones in my yard, don't seem to be.

I'm in zone 7 and have a lot of dragonflies. I feel I'm lucky in that respect. I live between the woods and a river, with a field on two sides of me. Wildlife is all around us.

I did some research on this beautiful dragonfly. It is a Male Scarlet Darter Dragonfly. He has scarlet red and some light orange on his veined wings, which I found to be simply beautiful!
