It’s been a hot summer, and these blue dragonflies at Reelfoot Lake were trying to keep cool. In order to stay cool during hot weather, dragonflies raise their abdomens straight into the air to reduce their exposure to the sun. They also use their wings to deflect the sun.

They must be very strong. They certainly are beautiful. God’s hand is everywhere in creation. Keep taking pictures❤️
They are interesting and amazing insects! Thanks for your encouragement!
