Monarch Butterfly and Meadowhawk Dragonfly
I'm not your "go to" guy for dragonfly identification. Indeed even the experts have to net them for closer inspection, a somewhat creepy practise.
As I expected Monarch Butterflies are becoming easier to find in September. They are among the most cooperative in posing for photographs. I have had a poor year for butterfly photography with even common butterflies such as Canadian Tiger Swallowtail and Painted Lady as yet unseen.
