Third-eye Blind

I love these dragonflies. The Green Darner, Anax junius, is a migratory dragonfly that arrived in NE Ohio on April 17th and have been patrolling the ponds, wetlands, and river corridor ever since. Generally the Green Darner is a high flier and one of our fastest dragonflies. I was fortunate to catch this one resting in the sun yesterday. I find their "third eye" remarkable.
