Midweek Blues: Lacy Wings

If you've visited my photoblog you've seen my green dragonfly that sat still more willingly for his portrait. Mr. Blue was rather flighty and as a result his moment of fame is a little blurrier capture.
The focus fell more on the left side of his wings. I hope you'll enlarge the image to see the lacy pattern. Nature is indeed truly beautiful in the smallest of details.

OMG those wings are just beautiful. This is gorgeous. But I think I like Mr. Green a little better :) However, they both are stunning. I sent you an email my friend on Brenda's Photo Challenge :) Have a wonderful day

I love dragonflies and this one is particlarly lovely. I did enlarge it, but you can actually see the lacy wings fairly well in the smaller format. Great picture.

At least you captured him! Pretty good capture at that. I do wonder why some are more willing to pose than others...
