  1. Hei Roy! Hienoja kuvia sudenkorennoista. Osa niistä on tuttuja korentoja. Niiden kuvaaminen on hankalaa, kun ne eivät pysy paikoillaan! Hyviä kuvaushetkiä;-)

  4. Great captures Roy and what a gorgeous header shot! I saw dozens of dragonflies flitting around while I was away but no photos, just a sight memory. Thanks for your kind comment recently, much appreciated.

  10. Hey Roy... I always wonder how many people ever know about or see the beauty in these creatures.
    Love the green, and blue ones. Those big buggy eyes make me crack up :) Great shot's!!
