It’s been a little while since I braved the heat with my camera. Chasing dragonflies and butterflies can be exhausting and disorienting when it’s 30 degrees, and with all the rain we’ve been getting I haven’t spent much time outside. This afternoon while I waited for my bus, I walked through the meadow across from the station. The Queen Anne’s Lace is at its peak, some stalks growing almost as tall as me. What a lovely sight to see a field of it swaying in the breeze.
The dragonflies were also co-operative, this one sat still for quite some time, basking in the sun while I photographed him. Pleased with the pictures I got, I decided to head back. If it hadn’t been so darned hot, I could have stayed all day.
