All Creatures Great and Small

I find dragonflies rather horrifying to look at...

... yet rather fascinating at the same time.

Thank goodness for a good zoom on my camera which allowed me some distance between this huge dragon fly that I found perched on a rock along the river in "our woods".

All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all."

  1. You got an excellent shot! We have a robin's nest in our hanging basket out front. The babies just hatched. I really want to get a picture but it requires too much maneuvering to get it so I'll leave Momma bird to her babies. Such an amazing thing to watch though!

  2. Cool shot. I actually think they are quite beautiful. Guess it may just be me though. lol. Thanks for joining Kristi and I for the Crazy Days of Summer!

  3. very beautiful. regardless, dragonflies scare the bejesus out of me. ick.

    fluttering buzzing clicking sound wings - what ARE they doing???

  4. That is gorgeous, it's wings are so beautiful.

  5. i think they are so neat...
    don't want them near me, but still neat!

  6. We don't have a lot of dragonflies around so I confess I'm usually just fascinated by them! Terrific capture!
