I love dragonflies...


These are from the other day in Illinois.


This was the only shot of I got of this guy.


I am so pleased with my little camera for shots like these.


I hope you enjoyed the multiple images.


You can almost see the 'smile' if you look real close.

Oh my gosh!! You just keep getting better and better! These are amazing, how you captured the faces and the colors. I don't know how you do it. I saw a bunch today, but they never sit still!

We've been watching the dragonflies slitting around the pond. The other day we had what might or might not have been a dragonfly. It was shaped like a dragon fly, but it's wings were striped black and white. Actually there are a LOT of bugs to wonder around the pond..and in it.

Not a dragon, but also not a fly. I wonder how they got that name.

A wonderful series of great photos. I really like the detail that shows how wispy their wings are. A top flight post.
