It's kind of hard to see and I would imagine that's part of the camoflague. I have never seen a dragonfly like this. It's a chocolate brown color. The wings were transparent with chocolate brown bands. I don't speak dragonfly and he just wouldn't hold still for a photo. This is the best one I got out of the 5 I took.
I can't find anything on what kind of dragonfly this is. I don't usually associate dragonflies with back yards, either. I always thought they needed a more steady source of water than my little bird bath. I see 2-3 a year but they are usually iridescent blue.
It thrills me to see these and butterflies in the yard. To me it says my little ecosystem is doing reasonably well.
Beverage: African Rooibos tea
