Green Damselfly Dancing

Green Critter Begins the Dance

I chased-actually crawled on over the grass-to take pictures of this green damselfly, while my mother looked on as if I have lost my mind! She was too shocked to say anything, and just watched.

Tail Up

Then this green beauty began to dance, and caught me by surprise so I just observed for a moment. I then realized that I have to snap some photos.

Make a Circle

It started with the tail went up, and then down, and then in a circle, and went on for a while. I was about 5 cm away from this damselfly since I have a tiny little point and shoot camera, and I was so happy that the pictures turned out well.

I showed my mom the photos later, and she said: "Now I know why you were crawling on the grass!"

Icy, that is hilarious that she though you were a little nutty :D These are great detailed shots. I can see right through the translucent wings. Beautiful colors and so cool you got to see her dance :)

I'd say your "crawling around" landed you some terrific photos--nice work.. Mickie :)

That's a gorgeous capture and good to know there are quite a few of us crawling on the grass.

Definitely well worth crawling in the grass and making your mom wonder why! : ).. It almost looks silver. Great picture as always!

Fantastic! Worth crawling on the grass I'd venture to say. The colors of the dragonfly are amazing.

I can't believe you got to take these pictures. What a marvellous creature.
Sorry for not being around lately. I've migrated diy projects to wordpress for the experience, and the stress is killing me. I don't know anything about anything and each little thing is taking me ages to do. I'm wondering if I did the right thing.

That is too funny, but cool that you could share those with her. Digital cameras are kind of foreign to some and only familiar to us the last few years.
