I came home from work today and saw a dragon fly resting on the shade curtain of my gazebo.I love dragonflies! they eat mosquitoes and they are so pretty! So I took my cell phone out to take a picture of it ,
Lucky I did, because I was in for a special treat!
As I walked up to the door I heard the familiar humm of my little hummingbird coming to the feeder, or so I thought . I am always hoping to get a picture so I sat down with the camera on on my phone.
Next thing I knew I had ,not 1, not 2, but 3! under the gazebo with me!
Sadly , the cell does not take the best pictures of a moving object, I never got all 3 in the shot, but I sure enjoyed the show! they darted around , sparing and taking turns rushing back to the feeder!
2 in this shot if you look closely
Then I went in and got my trusty little Lumix, and proceeded to sit and wait.
Patience, as it usually does, paid off , to a degree, I only got pictures of one of them , a mottled grayish green
but I got pictures
the others are a red throated one , and one with a green back
but for now
we have this one
and she (?) seemed to like having her picture taken!
will keep trying for photos of the others, but,meanwhile,I can close my eyes and see the little dance I witnessed in my minds eye , anytime. I so wish I could share it !
