"Globetrotter" Dragonfly

Actually, "Globetrotter" is a common name for the Wandering Glider Dragonfly. They get this name because they are the only dragonfly found worldwide, according to the National Audubon Society's Field Guide to Florida.

This guy was hanging around at the edge of the water just long enough for me to capture this shot. These particular dragonflies are nearly always flying. They are not known to stay very long in one spot.

I love their little faces. They always look like they're smiling.
