Bonus – Damsel Fly Mugshot

Hardly a worthy shot on most levels – but pretty spiffy on some others. Right in your face. Its face. Fun.

Trying to get out of here to start driving to Fort Collins for the art show this weekend. Check it out if you’re in the area: Art in the Square – Civic Center Park – 225 LaPorte Ave, Fort Collins.

Bonus – Dragonfly at Rest

I like the colors in this one. Looks like the dragonfly and the rock were cut from the same elemental cloth. Or something. The textures are a little weird and it didn’t really entirely reflect what I saw – or, better, the feeling looking at the photo isn’t exactly what I felt when I saw it with my face-camera.

Odd that. Normally, it’s pretty close – the feeling that gets regenerated when I see a shot. Usually quite parallel. Hmmmmmm… Something to ponder.

Probably my fondest wish for the site – that you feel what I do (or at least something similar) when I shoot (and see the shots again).

Bonus – Spider Celebrating on a Cone Flower

Probably not. Probably oblivious. Neat one, though.

Be grateful today, please, irrespective of where you live. The world seems to be in flux right now, but there are so many wonderful things – including the ability to share and access things like these photos (as an example). An incredible time in human history!

And while this has absolutely NOTHING to do with pollinators, it’s a blossom of its own kind…and seems appropriate today.

Bonus – Wrecked Butterfly :(

I think this is a Painted Lady. It’s really a terrible picture (light, background, composition, etc.), but there’s so much to be said for carrying on. No choice, really, until it becomes impossible. Still not yet impossible for this one…and I really like that. My site, my likes. Hope you take something from it, too.

Bonus – Damselfly on a Cone Flower

Great year for damselflies. They rarely land anywhere interesting…if at all. But there are so many around. This blue/green one seems to be the most common. There’s one spot in the northernmost garden that they almost swarm among some kind of white flower. Looks like they’re hunting as they hover.
