Dragonfly + need help with flower identiy.

 I thought about what photo to use in this post.

so first, I will share another dragonfly shot from last week.

Can anyone identify the above?  I have not not seen it before.  I wondered was it Pink Loosestrife.


Update, Michael Rawluk's wife was the first to identify this as Persicaria and I see several of you agree.  Thank you all so much.

As usual, your dragonfly shot has blown my mind. Don't think I have ever seen this flower before, though.

I'm not familiar with it but I like the color.

That's awesome that someone knows. As you know by now, I'm a complete bust about things like that. :)

Fine detail and i like the blue color of the dragonfly. His eyes seem to be staring straight up at you.
