Macro Monday ~ Colours to amaze!

Macro Monday

Regal Dragonfly

This chap was minding his own business on the Common the other day.  Unfortunately I did not have my ‘proper’ camera with me, just my iPhone.  So the pictures are a little blurry and the wind didn’t help either as I tried to zoom in to get this little fella.  However, blurry or not, I just had to share him, aren’t his colours just amazing?

108 112 117

Thank you as always, my mission now to get a dragonfly with my ‘proper’ camera hehe.

When did you last see a dragonfly?  Do you have a picture you can share with me of one?
