Wings

Fragile creatures of a small blue planet, surrounded by light years of silent space.
~ Jeanette Winterson

I think dragonfly wings are pretty awesome.

The shimmer is magical on those wings isn't it? Dragon flies visit us in late July through the first week in September. Thanks for sharing your friend with us now. Such a beautiful photo.

Hilary said...

Spring green. How could I not love it.. mine's the same colour. ;) I just adore dragonflies. They're an incredibly magical creature, don't you think? This photo is lovely.

Barb said...

Those iridescent wings are magnificent! Wonderful, Kerri - I like your color change, too - very spring-like.

yeah, it's always cool to see dragonflies, I get all zazzed when I see them in the yard, and usually end up running for the camera.

Gorgeous photo, Kerri! We have widow skimmers at our pond too. I love that dusky blue color.

You've never really seen a dragonfly until you see a macro image of one ... and this one reveals its beauty

Kathy said...

We don't see many dragonflies here in Arizona (lack of water, I presume) so this is a special treat to see this beautiful specimen.

The new color on your blog just yells "Spring!"

Becky and Gary said...

Love your makeover Kerri!
I love Dragonflies too, and this one is a beauty!
Happy Spring.

Rick said...

Amazing how the light is caught and reflected in the wings. Great shot!

Della said...

Kerri,
This reminded me of a boat ride we took up the Silver River. A beautiful dragonfly landed on a faerie tattoo on my back like it was really checking it out. Awesome experience! Great photo!

Mary said...

Wow, what an amazing capture, Kerri! They are such beautiful creatures, aren't they? Love the new blog color, too. :)

Rick said...

So love your pictures Kerri!!!!

Love this dragonfly. Their wings have always fascinated me but they're so difficult to capture.

I spruced my blog up as well! Yours looks good.

Ann said...

Mary said...

Dragonflies all ready??? How cool! A very beautiful Widow Skimmer....one of my favorites.

ladyfi said...

Wow.. that dragonfly has rainbow wings. Beautiful capture!

TechnoBabe said...

I don't think I have ever known someone who actually photographed a dragonfly, this is truly beautiful. A wonderful clear picture.

TSannie said...

Lovely photo and very deserving of your POTW mention!

Land of shimp said...

It's just beautiful! Doesn't it look as if it is forged out of stained glass? Too perfect to be real, yet it is real.

Long ago and far away I took a class in the examination of myths and fairytales. One of the things that was discussed was that many myths about faeries, tiny winged beings flitting to and fro, may have been inspired by either hummingbirds, or dragonflies.

It's easy to believe, isn't it? It's easy to believe in creatures from fairytales when you see something that impossibly perfect and lovely.

Thanks for sharing! Congratulations on your post of the week mention over at Hilary's blog.

Daryl said...
