I thought of the passage about how "Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the mid-day sun" while I was chasing dragonflies on the hottest day of the summer! The high temperature reached 103 degrees F that afternoon! That is really hot for east Tennessee. Fortunately, my nice photos made it worth sweating! This was a really beautiful dragonfly, I enjoyed watching them cruising the edges of the lake.
