A dragonfly

This dragonfly was trapped in our kitchen overnight- flying around the light in frenzied activity. I couldn't get it outside, so I just turned off the light and went to bed. All was quiet today but my son noticed it this afternoon- resting on this african violet pot on the window sill. I took it outside and took some photos- it has such beautiful lacy wings. 


  1. Wonderful capture! Did he finslly fly away?

  2. Wonderful light and composition in this capture! Dragonflies are one of my favorite creatures :)

  3. Beautiful golden light in your picture, love the focus on the wing and that you've got his tail on a 'blank' background so we can see the details you've captured of his wings.

  4. This is a wonderful image Leanne. Those wings are amazing.

    Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.

    Have a wonderful evening!


  5. They are such lovely little creatures!

  6. Dragonflies are some of my favorite creatures. I love this image - the light shining on and through him is beautiful.
