Little pieces of my life and my photos.
Why yes, that's a Skipper and a Dragonfly! LOL... no clue which ones. Great dragon hunting day Kerri!
Kerri,You found a male Zabulon Skipper and your dragonfly is a male Eastern Ponkhawk. Very nice and sharp images.
Not sure which is more beautiful - the stunning dragonfly..or fantastic bokeh. WOW!!!
Your dragon fly is beautiful! What a stunning shade of blue...even his eyes are blue! Beautiful! Great shot!
I tried to take a picture of a dragonfly yesterday but no luck lol! You have a very beautiful macro shots and very sharp too. Happy Monday!MM-After the rain
LOVE the dragonfly shot! Great color and bokeh!
Great shots! Both are gorgeous. Love your nature pics!
Congrats on finding such a beautiful dragon!
Beautiful..how excited you must have been to find your dragon!
Beautiful pictures Kerri. I love the last one a lot and its small bright circles in the background. Well done!
I love the colors of the skipper! Very pretty! And the dragonfly is adorable! I love these guys!
Glad you found a dragon. I haven't seen the Blue Dashers yet. It shouldn't be long now.
Gorgeous images - especially the dragonfly. I love the Dutch word for dragonfly; it's libelle. Happy Macro Monday to you!
Lovely as always. Saw some dragons myself yesterday, but not any in light/situation suitable for a photograph.
Very neat, Kerri. I haven't seen any dragonflies or skippers yet this year...but it shouldn't be too much longer now that you are finding them!
Beautiful capture of the dragonfly - the blurred background is just lovely;.
Love these! So many types of dragonflies out there.
Beautiful photos, Kerri! So happy your hunt was successful. Gorgeous vivid colors & especially lovely background on the drangonfly pic.
very impressive...especially the dragonfly~ they are so fast.the colors are amazing!
Wonderful and successful shots.
I am enjoying your blog. Your photography is fantastic ....I would love a macro lens 'sigh'.Have a nice day.
As if I don't already love your photo subjects.. I'm just going to love your dragonflies a bit more. Beauties, they are!
Wow, how wonderful to have a successful hunt for that dragon :) It is a beauty
Lovely macro! I can't decide which one I love best...
congratulations on your success- and what a fabulous one it is!!
Wonderful images, Kerri. Capturing a clear shot of these insects is such a challenge with all that flitting about. Great job!
Your blog commenters know so much more than me about IDing these little creatures, so all that is left for me to say is BEAUTIFUL!
Well done Kerri this really is a fantastic photograph.... as good as any I've seen in the National Geographic magazines... Have you not thought about puting an article together and submitting it to such publications.... I'm sure theres a fair chance your work would be excepted.
Love the sparkles behind your Dragon!
I've seen that same skipper but don't know the name. The way to remember the two blue dragonflies is that the Blue Dasher has a black tip on it's tail and the Eastern Pondhawk has little white tips sticking out. I have mixed those two up a lot! I think just having great photos of them is enough, whether we ID them or not :-)
You got the dragonfly!! Excellent.
YAY for successful dragon hunting! These are all magnificent captures. You had a very awesome trip I think!
