Pokeweed is such a colorful plant. With it’s pink stems, bright pink flower clusters, and dark blue berries it’s easy to forget it’s poisonous. It wasn’t until after I took this picture I noticed the tiny spider on one of the berries.
Here’s another dragonfly photographed in my backyard. This dragonfly seemed to rest with its wings pointing slightly forward. Dragonflies prey on mosquitos and anything that reduces the mosquito population is a friend of mine. Maybe its because we have so many mosquitos in the summer that so many dragonflies stake claim to our yard.
