Dragonfly

I took this picture with my Samsung SIII cell phone while holding a squirmy baby.   Mrs. Dragonfly was sitting on top of a burr oak tree seedling (that isn’t so happy about living in our yard for some reason) and it just didn’t move!  I got within a foot of it… it buzzed me once, then went right back to the same branch.  One of its lower wings is a bit torn; I think she’s been around a while in dragonfly time.  We have a lot of these beauties in our yard, especially with all of the unexpected rain we’ve had in the past 2 weeks (over 5 1/2 inches!) so they seem to be very happy chowing down on whatever it is that they eat.

At any rate, I didn’t think I stood a chance of getting a good shot with a cell phone camera while holding a baby, but this is what I found when I got inside.  Of course, I DID take like 20 pictures before finding this one shot… Just wanted to show off a bit.  🙂

Happy Monday!
