Recently, I had the opportunity to spend a week at the home of some friends who live in the countryside of Eastern Ontario. During one of my days there, I walked around the property with my camera and telephoto lens and was able to take photos of some busy bees and hummingbirds, as well as some flowers that I liked, a few dragonflies, one of my favourite members of the insect world and some butterflies and a ladybug.
I also came across this flower. I have no idea what it is, but the shape made me wonder if it originated on the Muppet Show.
This week’s photos are brought to you by the letter “D” for “Dragonflies”.
Dragonflies … I’m not sure why, but I am fascinated by these wee creatures. They come in so many shapes, sizes and colours, and I enjoy watching them fly and hover, like a large double-prop Sikorsky helicopter.
