My, what big eyes you have..

fab shot, these guys aren't easy to capture..

Wow! the details in the wings are fantastic..

Marie said...

Wow! Amazing detail! Your dragonfly beats mine! :-( But that's OK....I was just happy to get a shot of a dragonfly. I was IN the bedroom on the computer, and I saw him from the window on that stake by the lima beans, and I thought--no way. If I go outside with my camera, by the time I get out there, he'll be gone. Yet, he stayed, and I got two pretty good shots! :-) I'm still reeling from seeing the tarantula, though! He was out of focus, but you can bet I took that picture kind've fast and moved on! :-)

Great shot! After I take a photo, I always try to identify them...HA! Not an easy task...there are SO many different kinds. I love the detail in the wings...

Madge Bloom said...

Wow, what details! I've tried to catch them, but they always take off before I can get a shot off! Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #48!

Well done, Carletta--especially appreciate the delicacy of the wingspan. That twig must have been delicious--or you worked really fast.

Nice shot. I didn't get any dragonfly pics this year. Did you know that they can't walk? They can only use their legs to land.
