“Large dragonfly in the woods”

When I was walking in the woods, a dragonfly appeared from the bush. It is rare to meet a dragonfly in a dark place where tree grow. The dragonfly perched on a branch as if hanging. It was Katori-yamma. They are active in the evening and stay still in the woods during the day. Several other Katori-yamma were quietly moving around.  [JULY 2021]
