Dragonfly Tree, Dragonfly Meadow

Six Black Saddlebags.
Two Common Green Darners

All perched together in a dying American chestnut.

Upwards of twenty Common Green Darners perched low in these plantings.

    Kudos. Really fine detail. I wonder if the way the dragonflies wrap the ends of their legs around twigs and branches is the same as the way Daddy Longlegs do it? If yes, is it a sign of a close relationship or indication of convergent evolution?
