At some of the sites that I visit, there is a kind of grass that if it is not called "saw grass" it should be.  It will rip into your skin like a million little blades and leave you bleeding and burning.  I always seem to wear shorts to these places.  There is a plus, if you miss a dragonfly but knock it into this grass it will get stuck and you can still get to it before it can extract itself.

Sometimes these dragonflies are called 10 spot, sometimes they are called 12 spot.  Either way they are easy to identify from afar.

The female Jewelwing is just a striking but more coppery.  They have white tipped wings.

These broadwing damselflies are common but strikingly beautiful.  They sparrkle in the sun and I cannot resist taking many photos of them.
