Summer capture


 I think this is a female Widow Skimmer....correct me if I am wrong.  I am almost embarrassed to admit this, but until I started blogging, I never knew so many types of dragonflies existed.

Excellent shot. Taking photos is, I think, the best way of learning about dragonflies and many other aspects of nature.

Don't feel bad. I never knew either. Even now I wouldn't know one from another. This is a really great photo.

don't be embarrassed...blogging and photographing LIFE brings everything into focus.
I know I look at my world differently since I began my blog and photography journey.
Love this Skimmer. Dragonflies are so elegant. I love to watch them flit by.

Same with me. I had no idea there were so many different kinds and colors.

I had no idea there were a lot of different types. I don't think I have ever seen the one pictured. Are there different types in different regions?
