    Aha! What a beauty! A gorgeous blue, wow. Beautiful capture. I am missing my butterflies and dragonflies (and flowers!) up here in the northeast during winter. Hoping at least for some snow, but so far, nothing much. Lovely chatting with you. hugs, shar xoxoxoxoxxo

  • It was in the 50’s today and we are headed for the low 80’s tomorrow. No snow, although two years ago we did have a tiny bit. Great chatting with you!!! hugs, margaret xxxoooxxx

    I have trouble seeing them, let alone photographing one, so you get 11/10 just for that, and then it gets better, well done.

  • I won’t show you the 100 shots I took to get this one. I’ll just pretend like I am really good or something. Thanks so much for the wonderful comments.
