Lilly, our golden retriever, loves to go for walks. This evening, I put her leash on and we headed out the front door. I stopped in my tracks when I spotted this dragonfly on the front porch clinging to one of the plants I grew from seed, (I think it is the milkweed).
I only saw a few of these last year and never could get a good picture. Poor Lilly, I had to literally drag her back into the house, so I could get my camera and try to get a few pictures. It was the perfect model and even though I placed my little Canon A630 right up next to it, it didn't move.
A few minutes later Lilly and I were enjoying our walk on this gorgeous evening. We even saw a rabbit, which was thankfully in a neighbor's yard and not my own. I got pictures of the rabbit too, but those pictures didn't turn out so well.
