Camera-Critters #122

I spied this critter by accident. O.K., maybe it wasn't actually an accident. Maybe I was supposed to see this critter. Accidents are like when you wash whites with colors, and your husband ends up with pink underwear and pink ties. O.K. I guess that's wrong too, cuz I guess you don't wash your husband's ties. Or, do ya? Heck, I'm married to a farmer... why would you expect me to know how to take care of ties??? Oh wait, you weren't asking me, were ya?

Anyway... back to the topic which I apparently drifted away from. I was actually back at my pond photographing another dragonfly when something just beyond the area I was photographing caught my attention. The thing that caught my attention was the critter in the photograph below. While photographing it, I knew it was a new sighting for me. However, what I didn't know at the time was that it's a first sighting of this critter in my county too. Sorry, but that excites me! Yes, I know I'm weird for loving my bugs... so, you shouldn't be surprised to hear that I'm excited to be the first to see a particular bug in my area. And, anyway, why the heck would you expect a girl who's obsessed with bugs to know how to care for ties??? Oh yeah, you didn't ask me about ties. Geesh, this drifting brain of mine!

This is an Amber-Winged Spreadwing.
You probably won't think so, but I think it's awesome!

I do think it's awesome. Love the blue eyes, especially.


I think it's pretty awesome! It's fun to watch you get excited over bugs - even if you don't know the first thing about taking care of ties. :P


I think it is amazing you captured that on camera!


wow, that is so unique! amazing shot, Misty.


This is called a damsel fly. Very beautiful capture.
