a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

The One I Missed

Along the edge of the Top Pond the dragonfly gave me time to run back to the Gator for the camera. It flew just as I began to focus on the Button Willow along the water's edge where it rested.

I thought, One I will delete. Oh, the surprise I found when I looked at this picture.  The distortion in the upper right is the dragonfly and makes it a true keeper.  There is sometimes art in your mistakes.

It turned out really cool. Looks like a fairy rather than a dragonfly.

That is so true! I love the picture! Oh, and those Spanish Needles in your last post. I have experienced those hateful things too. The pictures made me laugh though. Looks just like my socks have looked before.

you are right, a beautiful KEEPER... I love it when things like this happen. I can tell he was 'getting it' and the bud is so pretty

Hum, might be an alien! But even if it's not, it's a good interesting photo. ;-)

I like this mistake. You couldn't have planned a flying shot and it turned out so well.

This is amazing, Gail. Great capture. I love the pictures that really captures nature doing what it is made to do. You often capture those moments. Thanks for sharing them. Hugs.

gorgeous, art is what happens when you're looking to create it sometimes

Ginny Hartzler said...

Oh my goodness, this is awesome! Maybe even better than a proper image. It looks like brilliant science fiction, or a group of fairies. How amazing that happenstance created this beautiful picture, filled with wonder.
