Dragonfly or Damselfly

The theme this week by me is "Dragonfly or Damselfly". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. 

I love to photograph these little creatures in such great colors. I chose as my header a head on view of a brown dragonfly in my Ohio Buckeye Tree. It was very co-operative to allow for a head on view. You can see the eyeball looking at the camera. You can see the buckeyes on the tree behind it.
 I was thinking of going with our flag colors of red,
white and
blue until I chose the brown one.
I also had a gold one captured.
These blue damselfly like to come aboard my boat.
This black damselfly was in my backyard.
See what the others have to show on my sidebar.

Wow! Great pictures of the Dragonfly and Damselfly! I almost felt as though I needed to move back in my seat, when I saw your header picture. That is a bigger-than-life picture; very nice!
