Red Dragon

By ChiliMan
Phew. What a relief. My dad was discharged from the hospital today and is back home safe and sound. He was there for 4 days which is a short stay compared to the 11 days in May. *Fingers crossed* he stays out the whole of July and August!

These dragonfly shots were taken yesterday at a pond at the hospital. I might go back this week to try for better ones. The hospital is just down the road anyway. Ooo…just remembered…gotta get a thank you card for the nurses and cleaning staff at the ward. Wonderful bunch they are Smile

What a stunning set of shots of this bright red dragonfly Andrew, a real beauty for sure. I bet the hospital would like a few of your images done as prints so that they can put them up in the waiting room and the wards for patients and visitors to look at
