It will still be a while before we see any roses here. Nice catch of the damselfly on the rose.
The moon is growing! she will be at 1st quarter by Tuesday.
Thanks, Lavinia. Damselflies are not as skitish and dragonflies. The damsels let me get really close.
I only see the dragonflies flitting in my garden. Your visitin damsefly is lovely to look at, so are your peace roses.
I haven’t had a pink a rose in a while now.
Stunning image of the shy halfmoon.
Most welcome, Tim.
The lovely damsels are visiting my house also to watch the moon grow.
Nice capture of this damselfly and from the moon.
How very pretty, Timothy.
I can hear the damselfly saying: “Is this a good pose, paparazzo?”
Happy Sunday, Tim!
You are right on the damsel pose. They are great posers. Thanks, Marina. I hope your Sunday is going well?
Errands day ….mainly the tiding up kind and it’s a pretty warm day too! 😉 Hope you’re enjoying yours!!
Been cleaning up around rose buhes, cutting dead canes off of the bushes and watering. It’s 32.2º C right now.
Hope you’re staying clear the thorns! It’s hot here too 34C going up!
I’m all scratched up. You can’t work with roses without getting scratched.
Oh, I know… I had my share yesterday cleaning up our wild rose!
Lovely. Something gorgeous about the word damselfly I always think
It is a lovely name. Thanks, Shey.
it is. A name to sit on the tongue and be savored.
Savored with satisfaction.
Indeed, it makes me think of warm lazy days where such things hover.
I’ve never seen a damselfly that close-up before.
So beautiful in the detail and the distant view. 💗💜
great captures Tm! 💖
You’re so welcome Tim! 💖
What’s the difference between a damselfly and a dragonfly?
This one is particularly lovely posing on the rose!
Hi Dale. The main differences are Damselfly’s wings fold up in line with their bodies. Dragonflies’ wings are always perpendicular to their bodies. Damselflies’ bodies are thinner, their eyes are round and well separated at ends of their heads like Hammerhead sharks. Dragonflies’ eyes are close together and kind of look like visors on aviator helmets.
Ahhh! Thank you! Of course, I could have not been a lazy bum and looked it up myself but this is way more interesting. You’re the best, Tim!
I thought your were testing me on my damselfly vs dragonfly knowledge.
No. Honest query!
Loved the dragonfly, roses and Moon.. so clear..
These are so beautiful Timothy. Brightens the day! 🌸
Got one of those Damselflies finally to take a break from being on the wing! Don’t know much about roses.. or really any other flower, but it does look pretty.
Thanks, Brian. Rosa Peace has an intersting history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosa_Peace
Had no idea the had that kind of lineage – like thoroughbred horses.
Rose lineage is a big deal. Roses are patented, and copyrighted. I use to compete with roses, especially rose arranging. Whining Queen of Show was a goal many years ago because my brother-in-law thought arranging roses was not a very manly thing to do. Laurie, Tristan and I all won Queen of Show at least once.
You are welcome.
Very beautiful ✨
I love that all the roses have names! Are those the names of strains, or did you name the roses?
The roses are named by the rosearians who develop them. The names and types of roses are patented. Peace rose has an interesting history. Thanks, Resa.
I’ll have to look up the Peace Rose!!!
What a beautiful insect and you must have a strong camera to catch the moon like that
Thanks, appeltjie. My lens I shoot the moon with is called The Bazooka.
