Today I’m taking part in the Macro Monday photo challenge. Remember you can click on each photo for a larger view. If you like what you see, I encourage you to subscribe so you can enjoy the new photos I post a few times a week.

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.
