Here’s the dragonfly!

I’m guessing that not many people found the green dragonfly from this morning, but maybe I’m wrong. I’ll put the original photo below, and you can then click on the arrow at bottom that says “Read more” to see the elusive odonate.

    Sigh. Every time one of these “spot the…” posts appear, I resolve not to waste my time looking, and then I do just that. Maybe you are right about us not having free will.

      Got to agree. Blew it up (my vision’s not too good) and found it in first pass in 10 seconds or less. I seldom find them, even in 10 or 20 minutes.
      There seems to be more of a sharpness and contrast with this one, rather than the fuzzy is that really something even when identified.
