There wern't many butterflies at the gardens for some reason but there were plenty of dragonflies.

 

This little guy was drinking in the morning sunlight when I first arrived.

Taken at the Community Garden in Singapore Chinese Garden.

Caught this little Amberwing out in the front yard this afternoon. I've had two young grandchildren staying here the past few days so haven't been able to check out your recent posts but will get back to you soon.

A wasp? No, this is a tiny dragonfly that appeared to be a wasp at first sight. Eastern Amberwing Dragonfly - Morgan County, Alabama - 2017

A picture sometimes conerys a feeling.,, and this for us was one of those., it has that 'summer' feeling that we will long for once the long months of winter arrive and everything is looking so grey and dead.

Dragonflies are one of the only creatures on this planet that undergo a complete transmutation from a water nymph to a winged dragonfly. The spirit of dragonfly is special, and they are messengers to those who are listening.

Dragonfly hanging on a wire rod. Please view large.

The eastern pondhawk is an athletic, swift-flying predator, able to catch damselflies and other insect prey on the wing. In between hunts it rests on vegetation, ready to take to the air if prey comes within sight

For me is amazing to photograph tiny insects like the dragonflies. Incredible acrobats and they don seem to mind being photograph at all. The down part of photographing these guys is that you have to get into the skirts of lakes or rivers to get close to them, and by doing that get dirty, but their photos are amazing!

Photography is my passion, and nature photography is my favorite.

 

I have been in Explore for more that a hundred times, and it is an awesome experience to have your photos showcased in such a special way.

 

I'm in many groups, and I only add my photos to them if they are not private.

 

I thank your for coming today, for leaving a comment, and make a favorite of yours this photo, (if that is the case) thanks again!

 

The best part of this forum is the contacts and friends that I have made over the years, that have the same passion for this art that is called photography!

 

Martha,

   

 

Many thanks for your continued visit and support:)

Blue Dasher - Pachydiplax longipennis

MALE

 

Dragonfly’s eyes have about 30,000 lenses and have a full 360-degree field of vision, but they don’t see details very well. A human eye only has one lens and sees better than a dragonfly, but only to the front and side.

Typically dragonflies are very flitty creatures but this one was quite friendly and let me take a nice macro shot of him.

Memorial Park, Mt. Vernon, Ohio

I was walking around looking for wildflowers to photograph when this beauty came flying by, the more photos I took of her the closer she let me get! She is quite colorful!

  

Thanks for all awards and comments

Besides all the great birds that were attracted to the feeders and flowers at the Harrison's house, dragonflies ocassionally landed on the flowers. The 500 made for a decent "macro" lens as well.

 

Cerro Azul, Panama. February 2017

No crop...just as framed in the camera. File size reduced. Most satisfying detail shot yet of one of these dragonflies. Large is nice.

Dragonflies - Libelle

 

The dragonflies (Odonata) form an order within the class of insects (Insecta). Of the 5680 known species (as of 2008) [1] in Central Europe occur about 85. The wingspan of the animals is in general between 20 and 110 mm, the type Megaloprepus coerulatus (Zygoptera, Pseudostigmatidae, so a "small" dragonfly), however, can even reach a maximum span of 190 mm.

Not sure what kind it is but it's beautiful! The branch was hanging over a pond on the side of Yellowstone Lake

Heat and humidity here. Lots of things are flourishing.

It's so difficult to take a picture of a dragonfly under the sun of Miami! Enjoy and let me know if you like it!

Found this Pink looking dragonfly at the Fairhope Pier.

Also known as a long-tailed skimmer. This is an immature male and around 1.5 inches long. I thought it was strange that we have several whitetails in the side yard since we don't have a pond, but it may be that we've been getting lots of rain lately.

 

Thank you for your visits, kind comments and faves!
