Eastern Amberwing

I'll Hang On ~ You Don't Let Go
(c) Misty DawnS

For "Dragonfly Thursday" on Flickr, I chose to post a photo of the Eastern Amberwing, which is a very small dragonfly compared to others. In fact, when I first ran around my pond chasing and photographing Eastern Amberwings, I thought they were baby dragonflies. I even posted to Flickr and said that these "baby dragonflies" were fun to photograph. I was informed by one of my more knowledgdeable contacts (most of them are) that these aren't baby dragonflies, but just a smaller species. I love learning about the things I photograph (even if I did feel a bit embarrassed at my error)! I really, really want to get some reference books (I have none *insert pout here*), and I swear some of my Flickr contacts/friends should have jobs supplying photos and information to reference books! I truly admire them!

Note: Dragonfly Thursday is not an official Flickr group that I'm aware of. As far as I know, it's just something I and some of my friends do on Thursday.

What an amazing creature, Misty. It looks like it's wearing a mask.
Just fabulous, the way it is holding onto that piece of grass.
But the most wonderful thing is the clarity of your photo, every little detail of those delicate wings - great work!

Dragonflies are such amazing creatures! You captured him beautifully!! I can't wait until they come back!!!


Excellent Amberwing shot.


When I spring saw this picture and I listen to audio about a father who was too late to meet the wishes of her son who wanted to read story books, but those days have passed since that day his son died of a vehicle in a hit-man who was drunk. This photo express loneliness for me at this time. photos are nice and beautiful.

My friend have lamp in the form of Dragonfly. It's very interesting and unusual.
