Shying Away

shying away
blowing petal kisses
carried by the wind

No, the damselfly won't be shying away.

It looks charming in your header.
Beautiful words to accompany a gorgeous picture. This macro shot is a work of art.

Very nicely captured. It's peek a boo, how cute.

A beautiful macro and I love how the sunlight is shining on those petals.

Beautiful, this one of the white flowers that fluttered so much at the Palace of the Legion of Honor. I still haven't used those photos! I'd like to go back there and see what they're like when it isn't so windy.

I like this one. The yellow and the white go so well together. This closeup makes it feel like a world wrapped in white silk.
Excellent Macro shot. I adore dragonflys, especially here in Florida. I see several variations of them everyday.
Ann, thank you :)

Ratty, Oh, I like your description, very poetic.

Ancient, They are so gorgeous and difficult to capture, I just got lucky with this one.
