Poor Dragonfly by ginas-cakes Poor Dragonfly by ginas-cakes
My daughter spotted this little creature who was resting on a plant. We think it hurt it's tail as it didn't fly away...

:) It's a damselfly, these ones usualy live nearby a creak with moving water. I think it got hurt mating (it's when they use their tail to grab a female, if I recall right the female is greenish) It's a beautiful shot!

Thankyou.....:)...I wasn't sure. It was just such a beautiful colour and
it was amazing to actually see it close up....despite the fact it
was hurt....

It really was a sight. I was hopeing people wouldn't think I've altered the
contrast on it.....it's such a bright blue/green colour, and it was a sunny
day.

...and thankyou for faving as well...much appreciated..:)

I couldn't believe it myself. They look like you've
put too much contrast on them...they are really beautiful
to look at...^^

A beautiful photograph though - as it has been said, perfect contrast, and such a brilliant blue!

wouldn't have ever seen one though as they are
fast and busy little things....:aww:

I've rarely seen dragonflys myself. I've only seen a few in a different state, though.

I hope it isn't too badly hurt. It's a beautiful shade of blue and it contrasts so well with the red leaves.

Poor little thing died a couple of days after I took the photo.....It's horrible
when you can't do a thing to help...

Yes, it is horrible. Nature can be very cruel sometimes.
