Sometimes you don’t have a lot of options when you photograph your subject. You can’t get to the right angle, the sun in on the wrong side, you can’t get close enough, etc.  When I spotted the blue dragonfly below, it stayed put, high perched on a tree branch, and didn’t move anywhere else the whole thing I tried to photograph it. So I decided to photograph it from underneath and hoped something good would come out of it. I think my favorite part of this dragonfly on all photos I got is its intricate wings that seem to glitter in the sunlight. I was lucky to have a bright blue sky to use as a background that day.

    • Yes, I WILL do a 2014 calendar and I’ve been thinking I need to get started pretty quickly. I have so many photos to choose from, it will be tough. So I think I’ll do like last year and make a selection, then ask for input on which photos to use for each month. I have several dragonfly photos to choose from so I’ll definitely want one in there. Just not sure which one yet. Decisions, decisions…

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
