Oni-yanma dragonfly (Anotogaster sieboldii): Tsurugaoka-hachimangu

By the edge of the pond covered with the blue-green leaves of lotus, a beautiful dragonfly is settling still on the tip of a pole to keep watch on his territory.

The dazzling sunlight from the azure summer sky is mirrored in the jade green eyes of this dragonfly.

Although the glaring sun of high summer appears to never be fading, this brightest season will pass away in a rush before our eyes.
