Get on the Line!

Well, what can I say!
Dragonflies are interesting. Their pictures are interesting. Their postures, their wings, their patterns, their movements… all very interesting!!!

Here, its a sequence of four pictures where a dragonfly comes to join its peers on an electricity wire. I loved how it flew from one side to the other and back… just to ensure it landed on the same direction as the other dragons… Group conformity works for dragonflies as well.








Refer to following articles on Dragonflies I have published earlier:

Dragon flies were a lot of fun growing up with.

I remember running after them, catching them, watching them eat their own tails, and letting them fly with a piece of thread tied to their tails. What I never realized is that they had a wide smiley face and carried a lot of grace in all their postures. But with an SLR in my hand, sitting at the bank of Khowpasi Hydropower Dam side, I could feel them playing with each other, which I later realized to be their mating rituals.

But they seem all carnivorous, with millions of tiny little teeth, and they sure can’t survive the rain, or water for that matter. But I just can’t figure why they love to fly over the waters, more than they love to fly over the land.
