Saturday Snapshot

September 7, 2013

When I was taking the recycling out, I noticed this dragon fly perched on a shepherd’s hook.  He seemed to be posing for me, so I grabbed my cell phone to take a picture.  I got too close a couple of times and he flew off, but always came back to pose for me again.


Saturday Snapshot was started by Alyce of At Homes With Books and is hosted by Melinda of West Metro Mommy.  It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Melinda’s site.

    Looks like he was trying to blend in with the pole but those red eyes are giving him away.

    I wonder what was on the hook that was so compelling to this gorgeous dragonfly. Lucky shot!

    Oh, he’s definitely posing for you. Great picture!

    I’ve seen quite of few of these this week, but none have sit still enough for a shot. You did great, and recycling too.

    Wow, he’s sitting so perfectly aligned, and his colors match the shepherd’s hook!

    That’s so funny that he kept coming back. Cell phones take pretty good pictures.

    Beautiful. His shimmering silver wings are lovely. He is quite different from the bluey green dragonflies that you get near me.

    Wow! Great shot! I love dragonflies and it looks so detailed in your photo!
