Walked into the yard today to have eight or nine dragonflies take flight around me. It was a pretty amazing moment. I quickly (smoothly, and quietly – so as not to alarm them any further) handed my husband my purse and asked him to bring me my camera. Thankfully he grabbed it for me as I knew if I had to run into the house myself for it, and then come back out, that they’d likely all be gone when I returned. Two of them stayed near by, and I was able to shoot them from just inches away. It was pretty awesome… and as much as I would have liked to have shared the moment, I was thankful to be outside by myself with them. Just me, the dragonflies, and my camera.
I’m still going through an indecisive period with my photography. Normally I can glance through my shots and pick a favourite with ease… but again today. Just couldn’t choose. So here are four that I really liked. Hope you’ll give me your preference. I really do love hearing from all of you.
So… which is your pick for photo of the day?
