I took my mug of tea and a journal out to the pond; I couldn’t believe my eyes when another dragonfly settled on my boot the moment I stood still.
I took a few more pictures then sat down very slowly but it did not move
Several minutes later I slid a piece of grass underneath the dragonfly and held it right in front of my face; annoyingly I did not have a macro lens on the camera and had to stretch out both my arms to get the next shot so it’s not properly focussed on the dragonfly
I just had to show you that I hadn’t reached my dragonfly zenith after all.
Wonderful photos Lynne, I think you may be the dragonfly whisperer!
I wish I was a dragonfly whisperer, it would be much easier than the contortions I usually go through now trying to get a decent shot!
Hey, I can’t get enough of your dragonfly photos, Lynne…love them!
The trouble is that I would be spending too much time on taking them and not enough on getting back into my editing. I think I shall go back to easier subjects now.
Great captures! It’s so cool when that happens. 😀
Thanks, glad you liked the shots. Sometimes patience is rewarded but I have been particularly lucky this summer.
Gorgeous! No need to limit yourself!
Thank you. I really appreciate your enthusiasm for the dragonfly shots but I must try to spend more time writing now although I shall post some more “summer” photographs over the next couple of weeks.
I’m glad you caught a few more dragonfly photos! Perhaps you’ll start a new fashion trend with your boot jewellery! I’ll be sure to include a photo of my earrings in my next post, if I can ever dig myself out from under my daily round of running up curtains on the sewing machine and unpacking boxes. 😦
My grandchildren would be very amused by the idea of me starting a fashion trend! You make me feel guilty by mentioning making curtains as I started some back in the early spring and they are still only half-finished. I’m looking forward to reading some new posts by you soon.
