Colorful Dragonflies

I thought I was losing my mind yesterday when I saw PURPLE dragonfly. Jon saw it too. Not a faint purple either, it was a bright purple! Well, earlier this afternoon I was out in the backyard and saw a RED one! So I ran to grab my camera and started snapping.

It actually wasn't afraid of me...

It's nearly impossible to get a picture of these things that aren't blurry. Their wings move so fast it blurs everything! A few minutes after this picture I saw a yellow one. All my life I've only seen brownish or green colored dragonflies. Are they like dramatic chameleons? How amazing!
