Camouflage/Sunday Best

Green dragonfly

I must confess that my husband saw this dragonfly first. The critter blended so well into it's environment, that I could have easily passed it  by without a clue that it was nearby hanging onto twigs in the tall grass.

I like the beauty of its frail wings!
And I also like Myra's eyes in yesterday's post!

Sandra said...

my hubby is great at pointing things out for me, two sets of eyes are better than one. this photo is absolutely stunning. he looks like he is looking at you, i enlarged it and checked out all the detail, he has cute little eyes and i like all the twigs and lines and colors. can you tell i like it?

Not as camouflaged as to escape your keen lens! :)
God bless you!

amazing capture!

Wow! This is too good.

Cheryl said...

Great capture. It looks a lot like a common green darner. I shot a few late in August. They really do blend into their environment incredibly well.

RedPat said...

I never seem to see them sitting anywhere - just buzzing around!

Judy said...

I find they leave about the time I get the camera focused, so I applaud your capture!!

LONDONLULU said...

Wow, blending or no, you (two) saw it and captured it beautifully!

Danielle said...

Wow, your husband has a good eye! Great photo.
