Beautiful Dragonfly

When I see these gorgeous creatures flying around in the backyard I swear I hear them yelling for me to go grab my camera.

They are always such picture taking goofs and ready with a smile. Isn't he beautiful!
Just look at that little grin.
It's like he's saying, "Now if you look over here..." Hehe.

I especially love this shot with the blue sky and that fuzzy palm tree in the background.
Such a gorgeous wing span.

And just look at those leaves you can see through his wings!


Got the call!

You know the one. It's been blah blah years since we graduated from high school and we are having our blah blah year re-union. (hehe, clever how I skipped over that so crucial bit of info).

I just sent in my bio and I swear I tried to take it serious but couldn't help a total tongue, not so firmly planted, in cheek approach to it.

I guess I'm actually considering it. It's quite a drive. All the way up into Wyoming. Haven't been there in blah blah years, hehe.

It may very well be time for a little road trip...yay!

I love your dragonfly pics! I've never seen a red one before - ours are all iridescent black, blue and green. Beautiful :)

Debi, Your dragonfly is spectacular! It looks like a Red Darner. Hope it munches on lots of mosquitoes!

Love dragonflies, and that red one with the grin is fabulous! What a ham! LOL

I missed my highschool reunion, although my sis went and said she had a great time. She travelled all the way from Vancouver to Ontario for it, so I'm glad it was fun for her.

That dragonfly is stunning! The ones here are green. Once we move we'll probably see them again over the pool.

Awesome, I don't get dragonflies over here at all.
The pic against the sky is extraordinary.

I love these photos! How nice they stayed in one place long enough for you to photograph.
How have you been??? :o)
