Driving home Thursday evening I stopped at the wetland area (Baldwin Lake) in Berea and unpacked my camera. I'd seen a Great Blue Heron there but couldn't get close enough to photograph the bird. While standing on the bank of the shallow stream, however, I watched a lone dragonfly flitting about. The insect would occasionally stop on a rock near me. I would draw near, camera at the ready, but the shy dragonfly would wing off to another location eluding most of my photo efforts. Looking around I realized there were no other dragonflies within my sight, no others to join this one in their aerial mating dance. It seemed to be the summer's last dragonfly.
