Monday

Found on a Summer Walk

I found this neat little skipper during a Summer walk.  I have no idea on the ID of this little guy.

And I found a Dragon :)

Kerri,

You found a male Zabulon Skipper and your dragonfly is a male Eastern Ponkhawk. Very nice and sharp images.

Marcie said...

Glad you found a dragon. I haven't seen the Blue Dashers yet. It shouldn't be long now.

Gorgeous images - especially the dragonfly. I love the Dutch word for dragonfly; it's libelle. Happy Macro Monday to you!

Elijah Goodwin said...

Lovely as always. Saw some dragons myself yesterday, but not any in light/situation suitable for a photograph.

EG Wow said...

Very neat, Kerri. I haven't seen any dragonflies or skippers yet this year...but it shouldn't be too much longer now that you are finding them!

As if I don't already love your photo subjects.. I'm just going to love your dragonflies a bit more. Beauties, they are!

Lovely macro! I can't decide which one I love best...

Stacey Dawn said...

congratulations on your success- and what a fabulous one it is!!

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Wonderful images, Kerri. Capturing a clear shot of these insects is such a challenge with all that flitting about. Great job!

Shammickite said...

Your blog commenters know so much more than me about IDing these little creatures, so all that is left for me to say is BEAUTIFUL!

Tom said...

Well done Kerri this really is a fantastic photograph.... as good as any I've seen in the National Geographic magazines... Have you not thought about puting an article together and submitting it to such publications.... I'm sure theres a fair chance your work would be excepted.

Love the sparkles behind your Dragon!

I've seen that same skipper but don't know the name. The way to remember the two blue dragonflies is that the Blue Dasher has a black tip on it's tail and the Eastern Pondhawk has little white tips sticking out. I have mixed those two up a lot! I think just having great photos of them is enough, whether we ID them or not :-)

Country Girl said...

You got the dragonfly!! Excellent.

Krista said...

YAY for successful dragon hunting! These are all magnificent captures. You had a very awesome trip I think!
