Finally!!!! I caught a dragonfly. Wooo hoooo!!!!! I've been wanting to catch one for a long time, and today was the day. Postscript - Papa says it's a damsefly, which is even cooler!!!! Thanks for the info Papa - I'm a real novice on these lovely creatures, so I appreciate all the details that anyone can share.
It's not the greatest shot, but I was just happy that it was decent & that I finally got one! Yeah!!!
Chika will have to tell us what kind it is, I just know what this pretty little creature is, but all I can say is that it's a blue one. I love her eyes and the tiny hairs on her face and back. She is just such a cute one. - I wish she'd have stayed still long enough for me to get a better shot - but oh well - I was thrilled to get this one. It just MADE my day.
The blue tip on it's tail wasn't clear because I saw her out of the corner of my eye, swung around & shot in the blink of my eye.
I was just so surprised to see her this afternoon. My husband & I were walking around an old creek bridge way out in the country about 30 miles from our home in Waxahachie, TX. As soon as I saw her, I snapped the shot so quickly that I didn't know if I caught her or not. Then in a mili-second she was flying away from me.
The photo is cropped quite a bit and there's grain in it, but maybe now that I've been able to snap this first one, these beauties will be more cooperative in the future and give me another couple of their cousin's to shoot. :))
Best regards to all!!!
