Yarrow Dragonfly

I finally caught a dragonfly lighting on my yarrow! We have many varieties flitting around, but they are so fast, and start at my slightest movement, it is hard for me to sketch them!  The color has faded a bit on these blooms, but they continue bravely despite our summer heat!  The original plants are from my mom's garden in the house I grew up, in Overland Park.  Moved here many years ago, I have moved them around the yard, spreading their beauty.  With ink and watercolor I paint this in miniature, only 3x3 inches of handmade cotton paper.  I'm going to have so many paintings of my gardens at summer's end!  Painting number 2750 in 2750 days.
