Subject: Anax junius (?) and some bug art

Enjoying your site as always. I rescued this dragonfly from the roadway when I was out for a run today– surprisingly, he was alive and in good shape! He rode along on my finger for a while until I found a nice sunny–and safe– fence post for him to rest on. I suspect he was trying to soak up some heat from the asphalt. I think he’s a green darner (ajax junius), although I’m not sure he perfectly matches the pictures on your site. I didn’t think to measure him before I left him, but hopefully my hand gives enough sense of scale. He’s my first dragonfly of the season, so I’m very excited that he let me give him a lift!
I’ve also attached a dragonfly doodle I recently finished–thought you might enjoy.
Your Green Darner image is beautiful, but we really love your Dragonfly doodle, which would make gorgeous fabric print.

Oops. We forgot to post the image of your art.
