    Smile Pics of a frog, dragonfly, and more!

    Lots of new pics I am very excited about. I got my first great frog pics off a lil' guy who let me use him as a model. The dragonfly I found was so patient with me...I had my camera lens about 4 inches from his face and he didn't even flinch!! A few other critters to boot...oh happy day!

    Hello lil' guy:

    Shann, these are wonderful. I love the bee scratching his head and of course, all of the dragon fly eye closeups! The frog is so cool too. The coloring is so intense and the photos are so sharp and clear.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Shann, I so love green frogs, and that one is a little cutie, and your dragonfly pics are absolutely wonderful; like particularly the third one with the blue background. Congratulations again on your great photographic skills.
