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).
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.
Here are a couple from yesterday. Very, very, very windy and this one had taken shelter fairly deep and behind some culinary sage. A bit arty, but so was the contortion of the photographer – tho not nearly as interesting or beautiful. Hope you like these two.
