One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in His temple. (Psalm 27:4)
Wow---every time you all go there, you see such great treasures... That Kingfisher is gorgeous... And or course, you are the Dragonfly Whisperer for sure..Hope you have a good 4th.Hugs,Betsy
Ha! Thanks for the new title, Betsy. ;) The photos of the kingfisher weren't the best, but I couldn't resist including them.
Fantastic pictures. I love all the dragonflies you get to photograph.
Thanks so much, Ruth. I'll bet you could find some of those dragonflies at your Lake Minniwasta. It just takes a little patience. If you see them perching, just try to get close to where they are. They may fly away, but they'll usually return to the same perch.
You get marvelous photos of dragonflies, but your pictures of the kingfisher are very good as well.
Thank you, George. I appreciate the kind words.
Great pictures! Love that Kingfisher, a hard one to get.I see you going on the hunt for dragonflies like I do occasionally.some days that may be all I shoot LOL I sat on a log in the middle of the Niabrara River for 45 minutes just hoping to get a kingfisher shot. I was still using film so wasn't sure what would turn out. It was a warm day so the river soothed me, but never got a good one.
Thanks so much, Steve. Those Kingfisher shots were a long way from perfect, but they were all I could get. He was too far away from me for a clear shot. The take-off shot was accidental. I was trying to capture another perching photo. ;)
To the dragonfly queen, great pictures of the dragonflies, you seem to capture them is such a perfect pose.I am intrigued with the variety of the species...Thank you for sharing them.
Thank you, Mike and Gerri. There is such an abundance of the dragonflies at the state park this year. It's like they're making up for the dearth of last year. And I'm seeing more variety than I ever remember seeing before. So I'm pretty sure this won't be the last dragonfly post of the season. :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Great pics of the dragonflies!
Thanks, Linda. I enjoyed my visit to your blog very much.
I love the shots of dragonflies! They move fast. I enlarged them...the kingfisher is pretty
Thank you, Kim. You will notice that most of my dragonfly shots are of those who are perching. It's very difficult to get a shot of one flying. ;)
Hello Linda! We were driving by a pond just a few evenings ago and my husband saw a Kingfisher diving in and he said, "Hmmm...wonder what that Kingfisher saw that it was diving in after?" :) Thank you for the lovely photos!
Hi, Dianna. It's always a treat to see a kingfisher in action, isn't it? Thanks for the kind words.
