I photographed this Dragonfly on a vine while I was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

During the hot summer here in my area, I will photograph lots of insects while I’m out hiking. Especially while I’m at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge. The corn and other vegetation is over head high which makes it difficult to see the larger wildlife.
