Wonderful capture. I had to enlarge the photo to see the dragonfly, but it's there! I'm surprised one of the birds hadn't already made a meal of it... maybe dragonflies taste bad. :)

Ah, yes ... got him! The tiny dragon fly ... well captured. And the twigs on which they rest have a beauty of their own.

I love those little Weaver birds. Such thin stalks for such a gathering. Great capture. I'm enjoying being a part of SWF, such talent.

The dragonfly had better watch out, he may become dinner!
Lovely picture... it must have been the dawn chorus!

That is very cool when you blow it up.

A little distance between this five, and it works.
