Dragonfly Encounter

Yesterday I accidentally watered these two dragonflies who were sipping nectar from the last of the miniature lilac blossoms. Can you see both of them?    

Evidently, dragonflies can’t fly when wet. They stayed where they were, shivering their cellophane wings slightly to speed the drying.

Still a little wet. When I came back later, they were dry enough. Away they zoomed from that monster with the hose.
