Amazing Photo!

I don't even have words to describe how amazing this photo is to me! And no, I didn't take it--I don't know who did.

They can fly better than a helicopter. I know some yo yos that use them for target practice with a .410.

Lovely photo.

I am very fond of dragonflies. They eat mosquitoes and baby dragonflies eat baby mosquitoes.

I love dragonflies too. It is beautiful how the tiny dew drops cover it like little diamonds. One of my Pinterest boards is "Life Through Drops of Water," and I definitely pinned this one there!

We called them Sewing Needles when I was a small child. My very mean sister told me that they would sew my mouth shut. So I spent the whole summer outside with my mouth kept wide open so they wouldn't sew me up.

Great picture. I love watching dragon flies. Is it true that their life span is only a day?

Nope. That's the adult form of some mayflies:

Great pic! I wonder if was made with a live dragonfly or not. I would think the dragonfly would need to keep itself drier and warmer to fly. It would have to sit there a long time to get natural dew like that. A mister bottle is usually used on flowers and stuff to get that effect. Great pic either way!
