Better Than the ice Cream man (Slightly)

When I was diddling around at the state park the other day taking pictures, I ended up squatted in the grass along the bank of a creek, trying to get just the right angle on a shot.  And that’s when I noticed that right in front of me were several dragonflies zipping around and landing on the plant life near the water.  Be still my heart!  Y’all know how I love dragonflies, and those little suckers can be difficult to photograph well because they don’t stay still for long.  But there they were, sitting just as pretty as you please right in front of my eyes, as if they were posing.  I could hardly contain myself.  I started snapping away and couldn’t stop.  And that’s how I missed about thirty minutes of the family reunion.  Woops.

Love, love, love! Did you know that the photos you sent me last year are hanging in my craft room?!? Love them!

To answer your question...place to stay across the pond? I'm of no help. Last time I was there I stayed with Camp friends (who are no longer there, sadly!). I'm of no help! I agree, it's expensive!

You can be forgiven for missing a few minutes of family, those are amazing shots.

I, too, love dragonflies! Or damselflies. These are great. You're right that they are difficult to photograph. Looks like the last few are a White-tailed Skimmer. Great job!
