This is so funny.. He looked as tho he was hanging on for dear life..

Not many people have commented on my foto's as yet.. When someone does, I always look at their gallery..

I must be doing something right.. Everyone that has commented so far.. Their galleries look perfessional..

So agaoin this one reaaly hit my finny bone..

Great!! #2011250

This was a dragonfly, or some people call this one an antilion, sitting on a rose of sharron leaf. The wind was blowing hard that day, somehow I got a great shot of this little guy before he flew away.
