Camera Critters

Thanks to KaHolly I now know that this lovely little thing is a male Spangled Skimmer. I do love identifying what I take photos of and am always very grateful to our blogging friends who help out. Thank you KaHolly. She has a wonderful blog which you can find here.

I am really glad I got this photo as I don't usually have much success with dragonflies. I was just very lucky this one decided to stay for a while, at least long enough for me to get him in focus. There were lots of them flying around.


Camera Critters is a wonderful meme created by Misty Dawn. Thank you Misty!

Great capture. Every time I try to take a dragon fly they flit off.

Wonderful dragon shot!

Wonderful! It was even more spectacular when I enlarged the photo. You can see those delightful white speckles on him.

Thanks Denise for your unconditional support despite having techno problem with my commenting job. There are still blogs out there where my comment won't get through.

This wonderful critter has been exceptionally behaving towards you. Such a pretty sight.

A real beauty! I believe it is a male Spangled Skimmer. The females are yellow and brown, but still have those white patches on their wings. He's absolutely gorgeous, and you did a great job capturing him! ~karen

Great job! It's hard to find a dragonfly that'll be still enough for a photo.
