Mature Dragonfly

Mature and quite big, this beauty was resting and posed for a snap. Took this while in camp for my youth service orientation last November, one of the few moments of nature i could capture while in camp.

Natural Monday is spreading its wings again. I just love the sheen her delicate wings have, poised to take flight with impossibly fragile, glass-like wings.
Here’s a link to shots of her species. Dragonflies

Dragon day II: flame red

Flame red, a colour vivid and brilliant. The dragonfly under scrutiny today patiently perched on a water streaked leaf while I took shots to my hearts content.

Nature is beautiful in all its forms, big to small, animate to inanimate. I have grown fond of these little creatures, not for the flight abilities but for their beauty. A closer look was all it took to convince me. What about you?


Photo101: Wk 2 Collage

This is my catch up post for the WordPress Photo-blogging Month of November.
Week two of Photography 101 blogging gave up 5 topics to explore with pictures. I merged all 5 shots into a collage of pictures big and small, light to dark.
The pictures follow these topics: Mystery, Warmth, Landmark, Natural World, Connect.

Mystery: I tried to work with a nighttime shot. My first few lunar pics where terrible but I got the hang of it and made out a nice moon shot with the environment.

Warmth: A rising sun was the concept. Took an early morning shot at about 6:45 G.M.T +1.

Landmark: A very new and popular bridge that links Ikoyi and Lekki in Lagos, Nigeria.

Natural World: A still dragonfly was the perfect muse to use to symbolize nature at its best.

Connect: Not an easy topic by any means, I had to look hard but I found a thorny flowering plant branch that had webs connecting it to other branches forming an almost invisible connection at its farthest point.
