Dragonfly Delight!

I have been teased by dragonflies this past summer.

Often they would zoom past me when I was carrying my afternoon tea to our cozy sitting spot.

My tea would get a bit cool, as I abandoned it to retrieve my camera from the kitchen counter.

But, when I got outside the dragonfly would be nowhere to be seen.

One even had the audacity to land on my hand while my camera rested in the house!

Then, the following day my shipload of dragonfly photo ops arrived!

One landed on my arm.  He flew away and then landed on my other arm.

This time I was armed and ready.  I had grown wiser and had my camera with my tea.

I followed him around.  Then he took off for the back garden.  I noticed some spiders and got distracted with them briefly.

Then I found my dragon in shining armor.  He led me all over the garden, stopping long enough at several spots for me to take shots of him.

My daughter came outside to find me crouched over a plant with the camera planted in my face.  “What are you doing?”, she asked.

I was delighting in dragonflies!

    1. Thank you, Caddo! I had that thought too. You go first though. I’m still working on some others… The poetry dragon is lighting a fire under me lately… Can’t wait to read yours.

    1. Thank you, but don’t be too impressed… I think that knight of my garden wanted his pictures taken! I’ve never experienced such a friendly one. It was a gift! I love how they move their head around – so cute.

  1. I’m glad your dragonfly didn’t run into Freddy and meet the same fate as the Blue Tail Squadron on Isn’t time fun when you’re having flies. Thank you for the “Like” Greenlightlady 🙂

  2. You have some really great shots here– super captures. Yes, it does seem the camera is on the kitchen table inside at the most important moments outside. Try to carry it outside as much as possible.

    1. I have a very small camera which fits in my pocket or purse nicely…not sure what I’ll do when I get a larger one. 😉 Thank you for your visit and comment!
