Best of September 2014

Early morning dew and cool temps kept this dragonfly grounded long enough for me to snap a photo in Sica Hollow State Park on Labor Day, 2014.
Between migrating butterflies and the beginning of fall, September 2014 was a very colorful month to photograph.  It was difficult to choose 12 this time around.  I guess that is a sign of a successful month.  Click on an image for a larger file to view and thanks for checking in!
