Photo Finish Friday: Dragonfly



We had a picnic in the park the other day and while photographing a plant for my friend, this handsome fellow chose to land nearby. You can see his wings are a bit tattered, it was a very windy day. Amazingly this was shot with my only lens, the 18-55.

Have a good weekend all.

PFF is the creation of Leah over at The Goat's Lunch Pail.

Wonderful! We have had some monster dragonflies this year, but I haven't managed to get any pictures.

It must be a fine lens. Lovely shot, Reb. We saw a lot of these guys up at the cottage last week.

Hilary it is just the lens that came with the camera, which is why I am so pleased.
