~ DragonFly Macro / All Sizes ~

FULL size for non-flickr visitors

This odd colored dragonfly caught my eye while I walked by, I had to stop.

First is the bright green colour, then the smoothness in the eyes. The eyes look out of focus until you see the original size that is available. I'm wondering if this is a sign of being young for a dragonfly?

TYPE UPDATE : Green Darner dragonfly

Have a spectacular Tuesday to my friends around the globe clicking on their mouse.

Sorry for the double Insect load, but this afternoon, as you can see, I found another interesting critter with really neat features. Hope it's enjoyed.

BIG HELLO from Ottawa, Canada.
