Perched in the Wildflowers

Today’s post features an image I captured on one of my last photo trips to Minnesota. While driving the Sherburne NWR, I came across a nice patch of wildflowers that was very busy with pollinators and other insects. This nice red dragonfly captured my attention as it’s red body contrasted nicely with the yellows of the coneflowers:
