Cool shot.

Dragons and damsels seem to be popular topics among bloggers this summer. I'm not sure my camera is good enough to capture one, plus I've never seen one in Phoenix, AZ. However, I am headed over to the Texas Louisiana border and I'll bet I might find one there. I love the neon blue color of this creature. How does one tell the difference between drags and dams? I think this is one of your best shots yet!

Jacob said...

Spooky, those eyes! Great shot, though.

How dost thou determine which is a dragon and which is a damsel?

Re fireworks: I read yesterday someone in the US blew off an arm with fireworks!
