Swamp Dragonfly

Walked a short nature hike today to take some pictures, and saw some small wildlife including this awesome and huge (at least 5" wingspan) dragonfly. I think he might be a male "Swamp Darner Dragonfly" after just a bit of quick internet research, which makes sense since we were near a swamp. Since my photo barely does him justice, I just couldn't resist painting him. His eyes were such an amazing iridescent turquoise! Pen and watercolor, approx. 5 1/2" x 8".
