Went to walk the dog and I found this dragonfly flexing in the road. 

I've never seen one with these colors.  

I've never seen one with these colors.  

Its head was about as big as a marble.

Its head was about as big as a marble.

And its body was about the length of a pen.

And its body was about the length of a pen.
