Saturday Snapshots

Nothing extraordinary today….just some shots from around my own yard…..

Oh, how I wish I could find the time and energy to plant some Blackberry bushes on the hill behind the pool. The wild ones grow there just fine…the only problem is, there are never ENOUGH!

And, while taking the photo of the berries, I was joined by something I had never noticed here before….

I think I must have seen five or six different varieties of dragonflies this year! I have never seen a green one before! Pretty wild psychedelic green that fellow is sporting. Hmm…wonder if he glows in the dark?

Can you see the dragonfly in the last photo? I love the way the light was playing on its wings, causing an almost “prism” effect!
