Damselflies and the odd dragon out

Clearing space on my hard drive, so here are some photos that I'm saying bye-bye to. 



damselflies

A banded demoiselle and a beautiful demoiselle.

My, what hairy legs you have, milady!
   

Dragonfly


Here is the odd dragon out, photographed in Martinique. If I were naming this fellow, he would be a pomegranate dragonfly. 

Pages

One almost think these are the water-buckled pages of a book. I wonder what kind of tales are written on the wings of damselflies?
bug eyes


One thing is sure: You need good eyes to read them.

Wow, great photos! And I wonder how small the spider was that made that web in the third last picture.

They are so beautiful and gemlike.

God looked at cut jewels and said, "Let them have wings," and lo, dragonflies were born.

Gorgeous! Don't delete them! Or if you do, put them in Commons first, as someone else suggested.

::wants that camera:: Such clarity of image! My macro feature just isn't macro enough. Awesome photos, Miq.
