feeling trapped.....

This large dragonfly was discovered at
the bug zapper late one night.

I did not have the heart to just leave it there to perish so kept it in a plastic butter container until the next day. For a couple of quick photos before release, I placed it in a glass jar, hence the hazy quality and lack of detail. When released it was gone in a flash, flew high into the sky, then off to the treetops.

I feel bad about using the bug zapper as innocent insects do fall victim..... but the bloodthirsty mosquitos from the wetland keep trying to enter the house every time I let the dogs in or out. Glad I could save this one anyway. Hope it doesn't return ;0)
