This dragonfly was hanging out on the wrought iron tip of the poles where my hummingbird feeders hang. I am such a dork, I put the ladder up next to it and waited for him to come back (thus the weird angle!). Friday night my neighbor asked me if I got my shot from the ladder!

I love to photograph anything seaside and colorful! I am exploring many artforms and love the work of many here on Redbubble! I call all my dabblings “Kim’s Kaboodle”. I am also making mosaics from glass tiles and other media, drawing and painting. My art can also be found at link
