Those dragonfly shots are very cool, with the dew on its wings and body.

Very Rick! I've never seen dragonflies here covered with dew.

I like the webs too. Nicely done.

Great stuff. Some of those webs look like stuff you might see at Tiffanys. Pity the dragon flys waiting for take off. Great close-ups of all of them.

Hi Rick,

I really like your "dew" shots. The uniformity of the some of the drops on the webs is just amazing and the cumulative effect of all these little "lenses" is mesmerizing.

Excellent shots - esp the first one.

Loive the dragonfly shots as well - I just feel sorry for them, hanging around in that weather.

Those dew drops look like beads of glass on the webs- perfect lighting and great bokeh. Contrast their uniformity with the differing sizes of drops in the dragon fly shots. Interesting.

My favorite topic - dew on spiderwebs (and dragonflies). The webs look like necklaces strung with jewels.
