Great macro, but I think you "Just" love the way it shines!

I do like the shine! Your Widow Skimmer looks a lot like my White Tail(or whatever it is).

Jane said...

I love those shimmery shiny wings too - great capture!

this is definitely Dragonfly Week here at Macro Monday. I have never seen so many beautiful shots of these lovely gifts of Mother Nature at one time since starting to blog. It is mind boggling. Yours is different from the other and very interesting. I am so embarrassed that my thumbnail went in 3 times. Mr. Linky kept telling me I had an error in my link and I need to retry...so I did...never thinking he was fibbing to me and was going to post all 3. Sorry about that.Genie
