You Looking At Me?

CIMG2448-2

For Shadow Shot Sunday:
Damselflies enjoying the sun, the river and the water lilies.
Zoomed in from quite a long distance I’m afraid.
I was hoping for one to land closer to me but no such luck.

  1. All of your shots make me long to live near a pond or lake. Instead, I'm stuck in a desert!


    SING A SONG OF SHADOWS

    Sing a song of shadows
    Taller than a tree!
    Sing a song of shadows
    Wider than the sea!
    Sing a song of shadows
    Dancing in the sun!
    Sing a song of shadows—
    Day is almost done!
