About This Image

note the "jewel" on this dragonfly's back. There were many dragonflies sunning themselves on the blackberry bush today, in our usual walking area.

thankyou Linda, that's really nice of you, am happy you have enjoyed my photos. This is quite an "oldie" now, and doesn't often appear here, so it's nice to see it show up again :) It was taken with my Sony cybershot F717, before I switched over to DSLR.

thankyou Beverly, am surprised to get a comment on the dragonfly jewel pic, as it's an "oldie" pic now so doesn't get comments very often : )

Alandra - your work is one of those artists I zeroed right in on. Dragonflies are ethereal 0 and tis one's truly awesome and beautifully presented. Thank you for sharing it.

I love dragonflies ~ in fact my French friend calls me Libellule which is French for dragonfly!

I have to comment on this one. It is so good I can hardly think of anything to say. I think it is the best insect photo I have ever seen.
Guest - Sep 30, 2004 03:13 PM EDT
WOW!! This is incredible!! Great shot- congratulations!!!

i just love this picture -have never seen such a great dragon fly picture ever!! i love the heart shaped jewel in its center!!
Guest - Sep 27, 2004 07:28 PM EDT
thanks, Mary and Deb. am pretty happy with it, since I've lost the manual for the new camera and am "flying by the seat of my pants", LOL. we were in a state of amazement when we looked for the first time at the large images, esp at the "jewel" between the wings, and the wings themselves, as you mention. to say nothing of the huge turquoise coloured eyes !!
Guest - Sep 27, 2004 03:05 PM EDT
A beautiful, clear photo. Those wings are so detailed :)
Guest - Sep 27, 2004 11:13 AM EDT
Beautiful! I like the fragile detail shown.
