Camera Girl you have been getting some nice nature shots recently. Way to go!

Kathy said...

Love the dragon wind vane. I've seen one similar to it in Phoenix. I've not had any luck photographing dragonflies. They always land on something really ugly, like the ladder or the gravel driveway. You, on the other hand, have some beautiful shots for your portfolio!

Good grief I've never seen so many dragons. Out of 18,000 photos on Flickr, I have not one of a dragon.

RedPat said...

Fabulous shots, EG, especially that 1st one.

Terrific captures.
The last one at a great angle.

I love their wings they remind me of stained glass. And how interesting--a dragon weather vane. I don't believe I've ever seen one.

VBR said...

Aren't dragonflies such interesting looking creatures! Their colors are almost jewel like.
When I was little, we knew these creatures as 'mosquito hawks' because they just love to munch on those pesky biters!

NewMexiKen said...

We have a lot of dragonflies around our pool!

They are quite delightful.

Sadly, I'm not quite as good at capturing them on film as you!

Great photographs!
