Dragonflies and More from Ouabache State Park

This is another set of photos from what has become our favorite state park. These were all taken during a visit to the park on August 23, 2013.

The first two are flowering weeds that grow along the water's edge.

And what would a post from Ouabache State Park be without a few dragonfly images?

This isn't a great shot of the Eastern Amberwing Dragonfly, but I liked the reflection.

  6. Interesting how even weeds, in the hands of a skilled photographer such as yourself, can make a great picture. I hope you're having a great week.

  8. Lovely shots, the first is smart weed. The second almost appears as a thistle perhaps. Always like the dragonflies

  9. Oh my goodness, you are doing awesome with that camera! The dragonfly shots are beautiful and the one of the amberwing posed on the rock is great because you can see more of the surrounding area. Though I love close ups (you know how I do!), sometimes it helps to see more of the habitat. The widow skimmer is so crisp and clear and the weeds along the water's edge are beautiful. You GO girl!

  10. Your dragonfly photos are marvelous, but I like the 'more' as well. Your first two macros of the weeds are full of details, and the last photo is beautiful. You're quickly making this a favorite park of ours as well.
