Weekly Photo Challenge: Edge

Whilst on holiday in  Turkey recently I noticed that the dragonflies around the edge of the pool seemed to like either sitting right by the water of the swimming pool or perching on something tall and pokey!

So….I got my camera, sat on the edge of the pool, stuck my finger in the air and waited!

Look what happened………. (these are just 8 of many, many photos I managed to take!)

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.....

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!
