Dragonfly


Since dragonflies seem to be so popular, I wanted to share this very detailed picture taken a few years ago on the asphalt driveway to my home. Actual size of this dragonfly is about 4 to 5 inches.  A perfect design for a brooch, don't you think. (Remember, clicking on any of the photos will get you a bigger version. Definitely worth the click.)

It's fascinating to watch insects this way - you see details that's impossible to notice in real life. Great shot!

Hi again,
thanks for the advice on sowing Queen Anne's Lace! I will definitely look for seeds. - I love the English name for it too!

Hiya Yolanda,

I was also caught out by choosing asphalt as a background for a bug picture. No idea it was that grainy ;-)
