Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Stumped Again~

Ok, so I know that I have some Green Frog images here.  What I do not know for certain is the species of Dragonfly this is.  I looked up KY dragonflies and the closest that I could come was a Baskettail Dragonfly, but not this colour, or as slender.  I then googled the colouration and came up with an Eastern Pondhawk Dragonfly.  Thus... your guess, or knowledge of the appropriate name would be greatly appreciated~

  2. Hi Mary. From the images I looked at on

    this would appear to be a female Eastern Pondhawk but I don't know if there are any similar species in the US. FAB.

  3. I have no idea what they are as I am not really into insects or frogs.

    I was gone for three weeks because I got into a wrestling match with some poison ivy and lost. Hospital, shots and more lotions than I every care to cover my body from head to toe did little to stop the itching. Now I know what hell will be like and I have no desire to go there.

    Hopefully I am back. But no promises.

  4. A nice dragon Mary. Such a good picture I looked it up too and I think you are correct with your id of Eastern or Common Pondhawk - the male is blue but the female green. Keep snapping.
