We came out of Starbucks to find a hitchhiker on our antenna. Amazingly, he stayed there our entire drive home, about a mile, and I ran into the house and grabbed the camera.
I always love their cellophane wings! So dainty and happy looking!
whoah, that is awesome, I wish I had a camera to capture something like this! wow! what kind of camera do you use? I don't even like bugs but this was fascinating!
Amazing! You never cease to amaze me with your photographic skills! Awesome!
Beautiful. Some people think dragonflies are spirits of loved ones gone too soon... maybe this little guy was a loved one who wanted to say hi. :)
Zoinks! That is so amazing! You do know that dragonflies meanprosperity good luck strength peace harmony purity Wishing all those and more for you! I have a lot of dragonfly components to work with in my jewelry...I think you may have inspired me to create something...Can I get your permission to use your picture on my blog if/when I create said piece?Thanks for sharing your inspiration today!I need a macro lens for sure!Enjoy the day!Erin
I really need to be more attentive about these things! Who would ever think of running in to get there camera for that? NOT me!? Great idea! And great photos!
Wow Lisa! These are awesome macro shots of that cool dragonfly!
Such cool closeups, Lisa. Whenever I see these photos of a dragonfly, I wonder how it is that they're even alive -- they seem so ...um, disconnected with that spindly neck.
I wonder what he thought as he whizzed back to your house. "Wow! What a ride!" or "Eeekkk! Somebody save me!" Could be the last with the way he's hanging on there.
We had this happen a couple of weeks ago, but ours had green or blue on him. He made it home from the store with us, too!
Okay - you can't just post that and not tell us what camera, what lens, what settings :) ?How can we learn ... if you don't tell?Excellent photos!
Mmm... was he still alive when you got home? Or was he just hanging on by virtue of rigor mortis? Either way, nice of him to pose so nice for you. They never do that for me!
All I can say is "wow!"
I have never seen a photograph of a dragonfly showing the back of the head so clearly. It looks hollow. I think he might just be petified and glue there due to fear. :)
That is amazing! Both the pictures, and the thought that he was just hanging out there for all that time!
Maybe he was tired of flying...had to hitchhike. I love their wings too, but their heads are blech!
reminds me of the "bee movie". great shot.
I'm loving the wings!! Wow! I can't believe he stayed for you so long. They are so hard to photograph because they are so fast.
Lovely. When they pose you can just take a zillion shots.
a little pole dancer...
very cool, the last shot is great Lisa, nice work.
Oh my ... these are fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing.Hugs and blessings,
Just today a man at a festival where I was taking photos made a smart aleck comment about what I was photographing. Obviously the man needed to open his eyes. Wonders are all around us as you have proven with these marvelous shots. Di
Great grip! Wonderful shots!
