What do you think he’s thinking?



If you want to join the Macro Monday Meme please jump on in. Let me know in comments and I’ll hook you up.  It's easy to play, snap a macro (or close-up) photo of anything you choose, post it on your blog and come back here and let me know you're playing.  Words, no words, your call.

BTW, You don't have to have a macro lens to show us something close up, for example, the Queen Anne's Lace yesterday were not taken with a macro lens.  Come on, try something new. :)

  5. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Your photos are fantastic! I tried to look your dragon up in my reference book, but couldn't find it--probably because my reference book is titled Common Dragonflies of the Southwest. Not much help for Wisconsin unless it's a dragon with a wide range. Sorry I couldn't help! :-(

  9. I wished I would come to the same result ! I think I have to wait until Christmas then I get a new camera (a little voice whispered it in my ear) I have never looked so deeply in the green eyes of a little monster !

  10. Love these shots, I took a few shots of a dragonfly just a few days ago, but I'm gonna save that for another entry.
    This week I'm sharing a shot of a grasshopper.

  12. AMAZING! He is thinking "I may have a cute smile but wait till I show you my fangs! He he! I am going to suck your blood!" Sorry I could not help myself, he is too cute for words.

  14. Once again, I bow to your amazing ability to make a rather ugly bug actually look cute and adorable! (I bear no ill will towards the humble dragonfly, but at the same time, they've always kind of given me the creeps and I don't usually want them very close to me.) Anyway! Fabulous pics!

    I love dragonflies and you always manage to capture features we aren't priviledged to see as they flit around at the speed of light.

  20. I saw this over at Martha's ... and I just had to play along too. Marco's isn't my strong area so this will be fun to work on this area.

    Love the little dragonfly photos!
