  8. Nothing like a little 'eye contact' with a dragon fly!!! Too great! And that's a cool quote. It was fun to see Milo on facebook after the snake. I had a female cat that would always go for snakes and run them off...I was told not to worry about the cat getting hurt, but, I always freaked out when she had one cornered. Have a cool weekend Laura!♥

  11. I've met a few people who must be seeing dragonflies all the time. That, or they are just drunks!

    Just kidding, LOVE this little dragon's eyes and his choice of perch ;-)

  14. What a fantastic shot!! Love dragonflies. Brings me right back to being a kid and lying in the wild prairie grass on a summer's day and watching them land on the tips of the grass...like they came all the way from the lake just to visit me in the nearby field hiding in the grass. They seemed magical to me. Still do. :)

  16. The macro is amazing -- those wonderful lacy wings! They will never hold still for me long enough. And both quotes seem like darn good advice. The first one maybe even if you put together the words dragon and fly -- I could always drink the flagon dry ;>)

  18. Hey! Reading your comment about Isaac heading up here Huntsville way--nothing yet, but will probably get heavy rain later in the week. I don't think they are expecting it to be as bad ad originally predicted. I hope you guys and Milo don't wash away. Stay safe. Keep up the art!
