Default Few from June 21

It was quite hot yesterday, but it is worth the sweat whenever I can find a dragonfly sitting still! All of them Z35+LC55.



#1 Blue Dasher. His wings look like they've seen better days, but I thought his face is really cute!




#2 Blue Damselfly




#3 The very common White Cabbage Butterfly




#4 Same guy




#5 Very tiny and drab Brown Elfin Butterfly

Excellent series Saly - No.1 is my fave, like you say, the expression on his little face is sooooooooooooooooo cute. And of course is a great shot.

I agree Saly, he has got a cute comical face. Nice shots as always. Not seen you take a poor shot though.

Thank you Diane, catalex and eysha - I'm glad you enjoyed the dragonfly's smile!

Square one - I didn't notice the "lunch" until you pointed it out, I had guessed it was some sort of bug poo....

Marawder - haha thanks, your post totally made me lol!!

Great pictures, Saly!
I especially like the eyes on the cabbage butterfly--really cool looking.
