I came home and as I was walking down the driveway, I could see this huge dragonfly near the front door. Luckily, I had my camera with me and I got few shots of it before it flew away.
I didn't even realize until later, when I was looking at the pictures I had just taken in my computer, that his wing was ripped and missing a piece.

I wasn't sure these photos of this dragonfly would turn out well because of the cloudy day but decided to try and see what would happen. Glad I did because I was pleased by the wonderful results. This little guy was just hanging around on the top of the flag pole secured in one of my potted plants for about a half hour. I love the closer shot the best!

Beautiful shot! I have never seen a dragonfly so still. Thank you.
If I was a frog I'd be thinking "lunch."
Very unique photo Deeli, I like it.
Thanks for giving us another peek into your unique world, Deeli - thumbs up!
Another walk in my garden with camera in hand, looking for what will surprise me today. Look what I found perched on one of my garden stakes. He was just sitting there resting and looking around.
I saw this little one setting on a flower pot. I just had to get the camera, and get a shot of him.
This little guy landed right on my fence and sat there so nicely while I took several pictures! He even let me get up really close! I love dragonflies!
In a beautiful place in Auburn, CA filled with flowers and other wildlife, this dragonfly wanted to make friends.
Gotta Love those Dragonflies. (10/01/2010)
Dragonfly taking a moment to pose for a shot. I was lucky to capture this shot. I couldn't help but laugh when I uploaded my pictures and noticed it with its head cocked to the left and looking directly at me. Looks like it is smiling and batting it's eyes for the camera.
This dragonfly has been flying around our front garden and luckily I was able to take many pictures of it. This I believe is the best photo of the bunch.
I had my camera outside to take a picture of a window that needs to be replaced, and this little guy landed right next to me and waited to have his picture taken. He didn't seem to mind when I got really close to him (or her).
I was checking my raspberries last summer and noticed this dragonfly resting on one of the bushes. It was so still I thought it had died but decided to run, get my camera, and take the picture anyway. After taking this picture it flew away! I love how the leaves of my raspberry bush show through the transparent wings of this dragonfly!
Great photo! I've tried capturing good photos of dragonflies to no avail. So, I can definitely appreciate the beauty of this one. ;-) (06/02/2010)
Jackie, thank you for the mental pic you just gave me to match the visual of the photo itself. Your description was so vivid, even a blind chick like me can enjoy it. :D (06/04/2010)
I just marvel God's creations. I'm glad you do too! The transparent wings are amazing. Thanks for sharing this. (06/08/2010)
I was outside taking photos of my garden for my photo diary when I noticed this little guy drying out his wings sitting on the clothes line.
Caught this picture of a Dragonfly on our deck.. They really are beautiful creatures
