  6. What a great photo essay! I like the first photo the best because of the way the wings glisten. Those face shots are pretty cool, too. Well done. Happy WW.

  7. I absolutely cannot pick a favourite. I'm mesmerized by all of them. Love dragonflies. Have never seen one this close. Great!

  8. Wow! How in the world did you get that dragonfly to stay still? What are you? Some sort of dragonfly whisperer? I've never seen a dragonfly stop for more than a millisecond before moving on. I adore dragonflies. Well done.

    Oh. And I couldn't possibly pick a favourite. They're all stunning.

  11. I would say my favourite is the third from the top. I have to say although the face photos are cool, they kind of gave me the heaby geabies. Not the most loving face, that one.

  13. It's between the last shot and the last super close up shot. Both excellent! I've become quite enamored with dragonflies of late. Yours seems to be frowning a bit, compared to the one I had put up where he was definitely smiling. Could it be??? Anyway, do you know the name of this one? I have a hard time with knowing them.

  19. That's a tough one, but I love flowers, and I especially love peachy/pinky/yellowy flowers, so the one where the dragonfly is perched on the flower that you can see a lot of flwoer is my favorite. But OMG all so so wonderful!

  27. Wow - they're all great, but I esp. love the ones where you can see the water droplets on his eyes!

    ReplyDelete
  28. First and last. ACK! I can't stand to look at the photos where the dragonfly has drops of water on it's eyeballs! It makes me blink and since I can't blink it away, I have to look away quickly. It's very disturbing!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Gorgeous, as usual! I like the ones with the water droplets on his eyes. You can actually see the compound nature of his eyeball through the magnification of the water droplet! How cool is that?!? What kind of lens did you use for those?

    ReplyDelete

  35. So BEAUTIFUL, Lisa. You know, I could have sworn I put your new addy in my reader TWICE now and I sat and read all the new traffic and nothing from Lisa. So I sat some more and nothing from Lisa and then it hit me that something was wrong. I knew you would have treasures to share with us.

    So anyhoo, you are updated with me and I'll be back later tonight to read what I've missed. I've missed a lot! :-)
