Dragonflies by the pond

Today I captured some images of dragonflies, something I have been trying to do for awhile.  I was pleased with these, considering they’re handheld.  Today was such a beautiful spring day here in North Texas — 73 degrees and sunny.  🙂  Then we went to another local neighborhood pond where I captured the images of […]

Weekly Challenge: Up!
