G/Alphabe-Thursday

 Dragonfly with green face

G is for GREEN

A marsh is not only great for hunting dinner but also a  super place to hide, just ask this guy (a male blue dasher, I think). This dragonfly is easy to miss...unless you happen to see it dash out for a tasty nibble.

 Green barn, green corn and trees

Green barns melt into the landscape this time of year. They are much more prominent in winter.

Green car

Not practical and likely NOT green by environmental standards...but wouldn't it be fun to tootle about town in this?

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

I like the shiny iridescent colours of dragonflies, and they certainly are scary creatures up close.... just like a dragon would be, I think. Never seen a dragon though.....

see you there! said...

Great greens. That dragonfly looks like jewelry.

I love to lie on my back in the grass by the ponds to watch the dragonflies swoop over the water. Your shot of the dragonfly just glistens.
