蜻蛉の避暑 (The summering of the dragonfly)

これらの写真は2007年8月17日午後1時45分から2時までの時間帯に撮ったものです。撮影場所は標高1700mの地点です。私は蜻蛉が避暑の為に高地に上がることは知っていました。然し、私が実際に見たのは初めてでした。
合掌。


I took these photographs in time from 1:45 p.m. to 2:00 on August 17, 2007. A photography place is a spot of meters above the sea level 1,700m. I knew that a dragonfly went on the highlands for summering. However, it was the first time that I really looked.

Good Evening Pseudothemis...I really enjoy your 6th photo down from the top! The close-up...looks like he has a "sneaky look" to his face! I also like the tree(or log)in these photos...I like the contrast of the strong log and the delicate dragon. I would never do anything, at this stage in my life, with learning proper scientific names(ha!- I am also lazy!!). I just want to know the basics...but, I admire persons such as yourself...who dedicate years of their life to study...I am shallow in that area, I admit. Did I say my comments will be shorter?!...sorry!

Good evening, Spookydragonfly.
Your sentence is intellectual, witty, and splendid. I show respect to your literary talent.
When I climbed the mountain, I looked around the dragobfly. Then it was a little distant, and a dragonfly flew. The dragonfly finds me, and it stopped near me. It was a mysterious encounter. I wanted to upload the photograph of this friend whom I met last year.
Thank you very much for your comment.

Hello...It is the best experience when the dragons seek "us" out, isn't it? I've had the Meadowhawks land on me and to know that they trust this large creature... compared to them is amazing. I truly think there is an interesting intelligence to them...they show so much curiosity towards me!

Good morning.
We were able to have a glimpse of the characteristic of the dragonfly. I think that it is splendid experience. I do not think a dragonfly to be just an insect. I think the dragonfly to be a noble, one of a kind.

Noble, yes, that is fine description! What is your climate like? Are your dragons around all year long?

Good evening.
The dragonfly appears in April and disappears in December. Only the kind called Otsunen Tonbo is over cold winter with an imago.
