Two Plants and a Dragonfly

During my first tour of the “Orti Urbani” my friend Ephraim was my guide, then he introduced me to Gabriele, the “botanist” of the gardens, who showed me a lot of plants I didn't know of, in a still untouched part of the land. Sadly, I was able to photograph and remember only a few.

OK, that's not a plant and the picture is far from perfect, but the beast wasn't easy to catch...

Wonderful shots. I love the dragonfly.

That is a very good dragonfly photograph. I don't even try. Too fast for me.

Beautiful shot of the gossamer wings.
How can anyone remember the Latin names of plants??

The dragonfly is well catched, VP, and I like also the “Iris foetidissima”, a plant I've not seen before.

I think the image of the beast.... is well done.
Strange creator!:)

It can be tricky to hunt down dragonflies, but you do probably need the exercise.
