    The pond was looking particularly nice this morning so I decided to take some shots.

    first...a whole pond shot.


    This opened last night.




    I have a bigger version of this one set as desktop wallpaper.


    Perched like a small fighter plane, this pond visitor surveyed the surroundings, perhaps looking for a meal.




    "Hey, can you find me in the first photo?"


    The shell which once held a darner dragonfly-likely larger than the skimmer shown in the previous photos.


    Thats it for now. I tried a shot or two of the fish but they were not cooperative.

    Thanks guys! Glad you liked em. I actually didn't notice he was in that shot until I popped it up onto the puter and had a look. He wasn't too wary of the camera and aside fro occasionally flitting off for a lap around the pond he let me get very close.

    Took this photo of a small blue dragonfly in the middle of the day. I'm not sure what the name for this behavior is(anyone?) but he is tipping his abdomen up towards the sun to reduce the surface of the body that is exposed to prevent overheating.
