A Lady Dragonfly

Whilst in Turkey (boo hoo am home!) I took a lot of photos of the dragonflies around the villa but they were all male. The females just came out fleetingly, so you can imagine how pleased I was when I finally found a lady dragonfly perched upon a hibiscus!

As usual, the female is a little less brightly coloured than the male though no less beautiful! Meet Delphine Dragonfly!

And here's Delphine contemplating a visit to the pond to see the chaps!!

The male dragonflies were really very friendly around the pool and if you put your finger in the air they would come and sit on it!!!

Just have a look at these, taking with one finger in the air and the other holding the camera!!

Macro Monday

There are so many dragonflies about at the moment and here’s one I found earlier!

I believe he is a ‘Great Blue Skimmer’ but am happy to be put right if that’s not his name!!

Dragonflies-By Any Other Name Such as Yusufçuk-Are Very Beautiful!

We went to Patara’s archaeological site yesterday and I went straight to the water area where I knew I would catch some wildlife. There were so many dragonflies (Yusufçuk) that I became overwhelmingly excited and snap happy!

Look…….

A fine balancing act Yusufçuk.....

I think he has a drink with a straw in this picture!!

Me and My Shadow on Holiday in Turkey!

I have followed this little chap around the pool a lot today!

Dharma Dragonfly was pleased with how long his body looked when he glanced at his shadow!

He lifted his bottom end (I know it's his abdomen) and was shocked by how short he looked!

"Damn!"  exclaimed Dharma Dragonfly as he discovered that however high he put his bottom end, he couldn't make himself look long again!

Dharma stopped thinking about size and opted for the sheer beauty of his wings in the sunlight.

Having shown off his wings in the sunlight, Dharma decided to pose on a piece of dried grass in front of a different background! I quite like it!

Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes

 

I love looking at things in detail, particularly close ups of nature.

So, after chasing after many of these little dragonflies only to be thwarted when I caught up with them as I watched them fly off, I was very pleased to get one good photo!

This one was about an inch and a half long…..

Dee Dee Dragonfly giggled as she thought of the merry dance she had led that odd photographer woman. It was the least she could do to let her get one photo!
