For them not interested in reading, you can go directly to the SmugMug Gallery HERE. This is the same gallery as the previous post; I just added the photos below to the gallery.
For a SmugMug slideshow click HERE. When you click the link, it will open in a new window and you have two options:
1) Manually scroll through the photos by clicking the “<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos.
2) There’s a PLAY/PAUSE button at the bottom-left of the screen with the transition set at about 5 seconds. Note: clicking the PLAY arrow will run a full-screen slideshow. You can then still use the”<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos as this will pause the slideshow.
If you want the full experience, keep reading.

Given the tremendous success of the previous post, I decided to dust off a few more photos of dragonflies. These were shot a few days later and not in my yard.
You can see a bit of it here but the original (in the SmugMug gallery) will show you more details. You can click on these photos and view the larger version that opens up in a new tab. That’s right: more fine hairs.
Also, don’t worry; fewer photos here . . . but I’ll still have the same number of flowers photos.
All you have to do is wait there with the camera focused on the spot they last occupied. OK, OK, this isn’t foolproof. But, it has a high probability of succeeding. I’d say better than eight times out of ten.
I kid, of course . . . there’s no such thing as an unwanted paparazzi.
The place I visited was swarming with all sorts of dragonflies.
This next photo is of a Japanese Beetle (May or June Bug, depending on your location).
I’ve applied for a permit to buy a June Bug shotgun . . . but in the meantime, I dispose of them I can catch and hired one of them lawn companies to spray something that will discourage them from attacking my plants. I know for a fact my neighbor isn’t treating her shrubs, so I’m hoping the bugs migrate to her property.
I’m not saying that in a nasty way; ideally, everyone treats for these bugs and thus keep their numbers down for the following year; not only on their property, but for the entire neighborhood. Instead, most people just bitch about them and opt for wishful thinking.
This butterfly contemplated a mud bath . . .
This next guy (or gal) may — in fact — be the same as one of the previous posers.
Also, because you often don’t notice the transparent portions of the wings, it looks like the wings are composed only of the dark brown portions and it looks like they float on either side of the bugwithout being attached to anything.
Well, here’s one more green one, and then I have to go.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
