Things with wings





When I was a little girl, dragonflies used to scare me. If they landed on me, I would go screaming bloody murder to my mother. Now I pursue them and try to examine all their detail....go figure!

I can't believe you were ever afraid of dragonflies. So funny.
They are gorgeous. Great photos Shelley!

How can you not love any post that starts, "When I was a little girl..."
I am going to blog that very topic inspired by you.

I love the butterfly. Unfortunately, dragonflies still scare me to this day! :) Gorgeous nonetheless though!

Love these macros..you know if the dragonflies landed on you as a kid, that was a good omen..they say if they land on you, you'll have good luck and that you are a very blessed person!

Great shots Shelley. I remember being afraid of dragonflies when I was younger too. And now I do the same thing, hunting them down to try and capture an image of them. It is funny how our interests change over time.

These pictures are absolutely amazing. All of the detail. I don't know how you get so close. Beautiful!

My oldest daughter is scared of butterflies, of all things. I remember when were young catching dragon flies for bait. I can't imagine doing that now. Bees are my big fear. Loved your close-up photos.
Blessings,

Lovely photographs. I also feared dragonflies when I was a girl. I'd grab a lizard, but ran just like you from dragonflies.
