Camera-Critters #22


Down the road,
in one of my boss's fields,
I found Damselfly Heaven!
Seriously! They were EVERYWHERE!
I was amazed at all the different colors,
and, being the obsessive photographer I am,
I, of course, took photos of every single different
colored damselfly I saw :-D



See... some of them were in need of a little privacy,
which I wasn't providing ;-)

This white one was resting on a tree limb...
When you view it full size, it looks like he's got a huge smile on his face.
It's rather funny.

And, we have fluorescent green, with a neon blue tip on the tail...

I really loved this bright orange one.
It is so pretty.

This one reminded me of a zebra with its black stripes...

This one had sage green stripes...

This one looks gray or silver in the photo,
but when the sun hit it just right,
it has a lavender tint to it...

I also had a blast seeing my camera zoom in and focus on these tiny little critters.
It was a lot of fun and provided me with plenty photos to torture you with share with you for Camera-Critters.
You can bet I'll be visiting that field on a regular basis.

Oh... and for those who are bored wanting to know... I'll share all the fair/ribbon-winning details with you tomorrow. I promise... tomorrow you'll be accusing me of bragging on myself while I excitedly tell you about the seven ribbons.
