What a beautiful critter. I haven't seen a blue dragon fly, other than in pictures...we have the red/orange ones out here where I live. This one is a real beauty and amazing macro, Carletta!

This is beautiful, I've always been so enchanted with dragonflies, even as a kid, tried catching them...this is a beautiful color variation.

lisaschaos said...

So delicate and dainty. They whisper by so softly.

Janice Thomson said...

Outstanding shot of this delicate creature.

Leedra said...

Wonderful damselfly.

david =i= said...

Beautiful shot. I would have said dragonfly but for Leedra saying damselfly. I looked it up and saw the difference between the two. What a sweet photograph. . . I also saw this representation of a dragonfly when I was searching. I though it was neat. . . =i= =i= =i= =i= =i= . . . an army of dragonflies!

Kilauea Poetry said...

This is the best close up I've seen! Unreal..look at those eyes- ha..but its a damselfly? Neat

Pagan Sphinx said...

Beautiful, Carletta. I love the blue on the thorax (?) of the dragonfly. It's a very excellent insect capture.

Evelyn Howard said...

Nice capture. When enlarged, the dragonfly looks almost machine-like.
