A Dragonfly Hanging Tough

I was taking a few pictures of one of the Button Bushes on our place late this afternoon. As I was about to head back towards the house a dragonfly happens by.  I hoped he would land close so can get a few shots of him. He obliges and I start  taking several captures with my zoom since he is about eight or so feet from me. Just as I got about six or seven captures the wind shows up. I keep shooting thinking he will fly off anytime now. On top of that I have never seen one like him so I may not get another chance if he is not a native.  He does not fly off and I am amazed at this since the wind was quite brisk. Below are three photos of this amazing little Dragonfly hanging tough!

This was before the winds showed up and got the party started.

First the wind blew this way.....

I took the above pictures with my Canon Powershot SX10is

I am a 57 year old guy who is asking questions about life like "what does it all mean?" and " how come hair will not grow on my head but grows real fast on my ears and back?" you know the deep stuff. I am married and have been for 26 years to the same wonderful woman( read into that: she puts up with me and I married up). I believe in Jesus Christ and that He died for all. The rest I am still working on.
