Wildlife Weekend :: Gorgeous in Green

This little green dragonfly stayed with me for about an hour while I was working in the yard. I figured he really wanted his photo taken so I went inside the house, got the camera and he was waiting for me in the same spot when I went back outside. Whenever I photograph dragonflies I'm always amazed by how beautiful they are close-up - something you never realize while they're just buzzing around the back yard. It's one those 'stop and smell the roses' moments for me.




Amazing little creatures, aren't they? You can click on any of the photos to view them larger if you'd like.

Just beautiful! I've never been able to take pictures of dragonflys because they won't stay put. They always fly away from me. Your photos are wonderful.

Yes, we do slow down when we observe these beautiful creatures. They do call us to go in to get our cameras.

Awesome photo!

Very pretty, although they never fail to freak me out when they buzz by.
