Oh Hi, Welcome back. Once again we will be seeing your beautiful pictures. :)

I like the dragonfly's blue color. It looks like a shiny silk wrapped on her.

Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragon-fly
Hangs like a blue thread loosened from the sky:-
So this winged hour is dropt to us from above.
Oh! clasp we to our hearts, for deathless dower,
This close-companioned inarticulate hour
When twofold silence was the song of love.
Dante Gabriel Rossetti
The House of Life

Hello! Butterflies and Dragonflies are by far my favourite insects.
Their colourful but silent presence
is always a breathtaking moment for me.

Thank you so much for sharing The beautiful verse by D.G.Rossetti as it conveys exactly how I feel when I chance upon one of them.xx

How nice that you came to visit and welcome to my blog.Thank you for your appreciation of my photos.
It's always a bonus when fellow bloggers, can feel how much I love
nature, and the beauty around me.:)

It was not my intention to show my paintings here,mostly because I would have to get the permission of the sitter to show their portrait. However, perhaps I can make an exception, as one artist to another.:)

Gaspar de Jesus said...

Fantástica Macros!!!

Fallar said...

It's hard to think that design of this predatory insect is older than dinosaurs.

Tammy said...

What great close ups of these little damsels. So how do you know the female from the male? Are they color coded? hehe

Breathtaking said...

Bob Bushell
Ha ha!! Thank you Bob!:)

Breathtaking said...

Gaspar de Jesus
Thank you Gaspar!They are a pleasure to photograph.

Breathtaking said...

Good morning!
Yes it's amazing to think that the Damselfly predates the Dinosaur by
several million years. Thanks for passing by.:)

Breathtaking said...

Ha ha!! They are Tammy!! In both
tha Banded Agrion and the Agrion Virgo, males are blue, and females are green.

ShySongbird said...

Wow!! What a lovely comeback! I have been looking forward to your return and you have certainly done it with style :-) These are beautiful photos and the damsels are little jewels! I find it very difficult to photograph damselflies especially with the poor light we so often have here.

Thank you so much for visiting me and for your comment which I have yet to answer but will very soon. I am really struggling with blogging at the moment, finding it so difficult to fit it in with 'real' life.

Warmest good wishes, Jan.

Breathtaking said...

Thank you Jan!The damselfly I saw on your last post was simply beautiful,as were all your photos.
You do such a good job,even in poor light you manage to get such wonderful captures.

It sounds like you are in need of a
blogging break!!!

Breathtaking said...

Thank you Jane, I love visiting yours because your posts are so varied,( like your last one):)

Each discovery in nature is so exciting.So pleased you like the demoiselles.Thanks for passing by.

Janie said...

Oh the blue and black of the Damselfly! Stunning.
I love visiting you.

AND: my mistake on my blog in those years. Long story short my daughter quickly brought it to my attention it was 26 years ago NOT 45. No wonder you THOUGHT I looked so young.

Olga said...

So nice! Such a beautiful dragonfly!

Breathtaking said...

Never mind Jane, you still look young for your age(quick calculated
guess):)Thanks for comming back,it
did make me smile.:)

Breathtaking said...

Thank you Olga. They are beautiful little insects.
