“Yellow Dragon”

“Yellow Dragon”

“Time is for dragonflies and angels. The former live too little and the latter live too long.”
– James Thurber

Here’s another companion from my orchid hike. A beautiful yellow dragonfly, sunning itself in the warm trailside sunshine. If someone could help me out with its identification, that would be appreciated.

I’ve had varying luck photographing dragonflies, and this is my first shot of one using my 90mm macro lens.  I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. The light was just right to highlight the veining in its wings.
