Brown Eyes

Uploaded: June 26, 2019 06:34:20 | Entered: June 26, 2019 06:34:55


Taken in my flower garden. I talk to the Dragonflies and tell them in a gentle voice that they have pretty eyes, and sometimes that helps them to stay in place and let me get in close.

Wow, thank you to all of you! I tell you, this new upgrade on BetterPhoto, I don't get the announcements that I won, or someone has commented, and so I miss seeing them and thanking you. Maybe that will get fixed. This is the first announcement via email to me of any activity on this photo since June! I am so sorry I have been slow to respond, but that is the reason. I do appreciate your kind comments, and for you taking the time to view. This little guy allowed me to get in pretty close to him with me talking to him and telling him he had pretty eyes. Again thanks, and my apologies for being slow in responding. <>< #11775665
