Dragonfly, Wasps, Bugs at Iona Beach

I spent a few hours ramlbing Iona Beach Regional Park today, and while I’m usually looking for birds, I love photographing any other wildlife that catches my eye, including bees, wasps, and bugs.

I took over 300 shots of this Blue-eyed Darner in flight to get a dozen usable shots.
