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 – Dragonfly on a Larkspur

Seems like a heavy dragonfly year – or I’m getting lucky with them. Here’s one on a larkspur. Those have recently started going nuts. Even to the point of occluding that one blanket flower that the bees love so. Might be time to do a little unarranging there. This one sat up nicely for me…and I like the detail on the wings.

Bonus – Dog Walk Dragonfly

Took the dogs to the river yesterday in the late afternoon. So many, many, many butterflies, bees, and dragonflies. Had the wrong camera with me – but I think it turned out well.

Took the dogs home, swapped cameras, and went back… But was a little late. The butterflies had nestled in for the night and the light had changed. Enjoy this one, though:
