What a wonderful dragonfly! A Murder waiting to happen ... Great timing jenn.
The dragonfly's paint reminds me of an old ford truckWink
Btw my upload today was totally unprocessed, apart from the frame.. Silly me I even left the dust.

Wow! He is all pale blue like a spray painted vintage dragon. He does have a little green on the head. I wonder if Mr. Wolf could be the victim in this case. He is fairly small. TG

Terrific image Jenn, in all seriousness, would the spider have lunched on the dragonfly? Nicely done!

You upload your pictures late at night, Jenn, and by the time I get to view them, I have to scroll into the depths. Still, it's worth the effort every time. I applaud you for getting the two critters in one shot, and the dragon is exquisite. Far from being a Silly Sunday image, I think it's a little treasure and am pleased to give it my UA.

An outstanding macro Jennnn, that dragonfly is a real stunner, such fabulous colour. I think the wolf spider is wise to lurk down below he may end up as that big boy's dinner otherwise!
