Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

Big Blue Dragonfly had a run in with a tree and gave me an opportunity for a close-up shot, finally! After watching me closely for awhile and getting his bearings, he was off again tearing across the backyard as usual. Although they appear all black in flight, these dragonflies are actually quite colorful and have the most interesting looking facial features and markings..

    Before I got into photography, I never realized that the dragonflies and spiders have such interesting faces! This is a great capture : )
