A Dragonfly Swarm

Last night we had a dragonfly swarm in our back yard.  Two or three dozen large dragonflies flew low over the grass in the only area that was lit by the sun.

This was early evening on a mild night.  These dragonflies went so fast that they were nearly impossible to photograph, even at 1/2000 sec.

I think they were mostly Anax junius, but it is really hard to tell.
