Summer in The Garden: Shadow of a Damselfly

Pin It

Sometimes I become so fixated on my photo subject that I fail to see what is right in front of my eyes, or lens.

Here, I was so intent on the damselfly I didn't see the perfect shadow it was casting on the rose leaf.

Serendipity takes center stage.

This is my entry for this weekend's Shadow Shot Sunday over at Hey Harriet's. Click on over and check out all the beautiful shadow photography.

Lady Damselfly,
how thin your delicate wings,
how bold your shadow!

Dear Paz - Thank you for visiting my Zazzle site. I still have such a lot of work to do (sigh), and time is getting short. I start work tomorrow (big sigh).

WoW! it's been awhile the last I saw dragon or damselfly.

When I was young girl, I use to catch them and fight with other damselflies (silly me) §;-)

Cute shot!
