How lovely of you to share dragonflies after the damselflies, teaching me further 😉
Beautiful shots all of them!
I thought you would like to see dragonflies since you asked. Thanks, Dale.
I appreciate it, Timothy. I’ve shared my share of dragonflies but always wondered if maybe I was misnaming them!
Now, I know I did not as some of mine look like yours 🙂
I enjoyed the dragonflies and the planets all lined up. I have not seen them. And Sasha does need the thermometer turned around, just sayin’.
Lovely, all. I especially liked the pic of Sasha checking out the temp. It’s going to warm up soon.
It’s been hot here. Thanks, Jeff.
Summer has come – the roses have arrived. Along with the dragonflies and damselflies. Feels wonderful.
Thanks, Rebecca. All the summer critters are coming out.
The half moon is dressed so beautifully, and the sky is totally enchanted by her presence at that hour.
You have a stunning rose garden. Gorgeous blooms.
Sasha is such a pretty kitty. Inquisitive and photogenic.
The dragonflies are so handsome, and I think they are fully aware of their handsomeness. Super flies.
Thanks, abvr. The dragonflies are pretty vain.
Lol, true, this vanity is also to do with the superb display of flying.
There was a rust/red dragonfly in my backyard last weekend. Didn’t have a camera with me at the time.
I love all you pics!
Beautiful photos, Tim, and I love the dragonflies, that is a nice three panel set.
No moon viewing tonight. We have had passing storms all day, and it is gearing up for another one now.
Very cool pictures!
Sasha has an eye for detail 🙂
Nice roses and I love the dragonfly.
Awesome shots Tim.
Aw…and now dragonflies. Lovely post.
The critters are expanding. Like me and the universe. Thanks, Shey.
All part of the enchanted paradise! Thank you, Tim for my perfect Monday start! 🙏
You are welcome, Marina.
Beautiful skyscapes! Dragonflies always remind me of “The Dancers” by Wilfred Wilson Gibson.
You’re welcome, Tim.
the dragonfly wings! wonderful
Theis a dragon day for you and me. Thanks, Sylvia.
oh the detail of those dragonfly wings Tim is something else. So funny Sasha checking the temp. Gorgeous pics. OMG i can’t wait to share my findings with you.. i think i’ll post on Friday. I finally hiked the woods and snuck in my dad to a place i can’t usually take him and I saw 2 owls soooo cute.. nothing like your pics but I thought of you and i was in my happy zone. xo 💖💖
Thanks, Cindy. Owls are so much fun to see in person. That is very exciting.
Totally and i didn’t know they were out at 5 when it is light.. well except in your pictures.
💖. It really was!💖
The owls are out at various times during the day. But they are most active at night.
I never knew that before your pictures and somehow I’ve never seen them here. I’m going to go back first chance i get. I was trying to capture the Red Tail hawk pics and there was quite a commotion when I went to take it’s pic the owl was there instead and I hadn’t seen it before the picture which was quite a shock and pleasant surprise! 💖
Gorggeous photos Timothy. Especailly love the planetary one. Always wanted to be an astronomer.
Hope you are well.
Thanks, Drew. Astronomy is fascinating. I’m plugging along. How are you doing?
Sasha sure likes to put her foot(paw) down! The d’flies are so intricate, well captured. Got to get caught up now that we’re back from the sale…
Thanks, Maj & Sher.
Those Dragonflies are beautiful.. As are those roses.. 🙂 Love Sasha.. 🙂
All so lovely.
Really like the Dragon shots and Sasha’s expression in the second shot – “stooopid humans!”
Animals have a way of giving us “Stoopid Humans!” looks. Thanks, Brian.
Great shots of those dragons! ‘Ours’ don’t have colourful wings.
Thanks, blh. We have a lot of different colored dragonflies.
Lovely photos! You are spoiling us.
Sasha is adorable. Is she from the same litter as Spunkie-Poo 💋?
Sasha was born more than a year after Spunk. She has Manx in her. Spunk is Spunk. Thanks, Resa.
Those dragonflies are such beauties … as is Sasha of course!
