Photo Hunters #28: Tiny

The Photo Hunters theme this week is tiny. Whenever I go outside on my harness and leash, I am always looking for lizards and bugs. And look what I saw! A very tiny dragonfly. He is less than 1" long. I think he has very pretty colors. But I do not like his big eyes. If you click on the picture, you can see him even bigger. But you might get a little bit scairt. It is OK to be scairt sometimes.

55 Notes for Daisy:

Great phot. You've captured it beautifully

Misslionheart said...

I'm seeing a lot of great photography this morning. My didital camera isn't working properly, so most of the pics on my blog are taken with my cameraphone!

Have a great day.

RUTH said...

I've been really into photographing insects since I got a digital camera. Butterflies and Dragonflies are my favourite. I love these photos. Happy Photohunting.

Katya said...

Dragonflies are so cool to "capture" if and when you can find them sitting still! What a great picture!!!

Nancy said...

Very nice photo. Do you eat lizards? I hear they aren't good for cats. Please stop by my blog ( http://fancydancy.blogspot.com/ ) and check out my photos... and also let me know about cats eating lizards. My out-door cat is skinny during the summer and fattens up during the winter. People tell me that it's because he eats lizards (which hibernate during the winter).

Dragonheart said...

Wow, that is a very tiny dragonfly. Wonderful photo Daisy! :)

HRH Yao-Lin said...

The human is petrified of dragonflies! I have no idea why! Well, actually, thats not true. maybe I do understand a little xx

Ginabee said...

Very cool picture .. thanks for finding it Daisy!

Hummie said...

Oh, that's a great close up of the dragonfly! You must have a very nice camera.

CRIZ LAI said...

Caesar and Princess said...

The Dragonfly is very creepy. The eyes are ginormus and shiny too, ick.
You are very brave to get so close to that skittish flying buggie..
Happy Day Daisy and Pixie

I wasn't scairt, I was fascinated! Those are neat eyes. When we got Wingnut's HP7 book this morning, I was going to buy a dragonfly book but HP7 busted me! You take really really great macros.

Patricia said...

Wowie, whatta kool dragonfly! I'm not too skeered of dragonflies but I don't like them ol' pinchy earwigs.

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

What a lovely dragonfly! You have such marvelous creatures in your yard to befriend. A couple of days ago, a lightning bug got into the house, and all of us Ballicai were checking him out. Mom rescued him, though, before any of us could eat him!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

Kitikata-san said...

Hello Daisy, I like the photos of Dice and Herbie on the side. Aren't they just cute for smooth coat kitties? Of course, you still are the cutest curly coat kitty I have ever seen.

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

That sure is a good picture of the tiny Dragonfly, Daisy.
It does look a little scary when bigified!

Henry Helton said...

Your mommy takes very good pictures. My Lady has a very sucky camera and it doesn't take very good pictures. She is fortunately going to get another one soon.

Miz said...

That is a great shot, the dragonfly is lovely!

Tyler said...

Daisy, you find the best things outside.

We love to chase dragonflies but our human says no no because they only live 24 hours anyway. So we are nice. It sure is a tiny one isnt it.

Happy Weekend Daisy and Love to Pixie Too!

We were happy to see that Herbie was adopted (he's adorable) and we hope that Dice is adopted quickly too!
