Description

Male Epiaeschna heros

I took a long walk yesterday and got caught up in the rain. Thankfully there was plenty of cover and I also found some dragonflies hiding from the rain.

It had mostly stopped raining by the time I found this guy. He was busy knocking some water off his face and wings. Nice perching angle on that branch too.

It was a pleasant surprise for me because, I'm not sure how it is for some of you but, I usually see the female more than the male.
