Just fooling around with my dragonfly. I combined it with another one of my images for a textured background and cropped it closer. Every time I see this guy, I think he looks like he’s singing “O Sole Mio.” Photos taken in Dunnellon, Florida.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
