Here I am looking back on photos that I took this past summer...I started playing around and zooming in...and look what I found in the bottom right corner of the top photo. Yes, I cropped it for you! Another dragon...o.k....what is it? And on top of all this excitement...look to the upper right of that dragon. There is a VERY large spider looking down on that dragon! I wonder what unfolded that day?! What's your money on? The dragon or the spider? Or did they talk over their differences and just walk away? I've got to tell you, this was like finding the prize at the bottom of the Cracker Jack box!!

Congratulations. I know how you feel, lol. I've caught a few surprises in shots not realizing they were there until I looked looked closer when I downloaded the photo's. It is always fun to have a little surprise creature pop up.

SD: You certainly do a good job of getting the dragonflies. I captured quite a few this summer also.

Good morning.
I read a photograph and a sentence.
It is an interesting trial.
You teach me various things.
I thank you heartily.

I think the dragon may have had a lucky escape. No?

Okay then, what happened?

Hi Gallicissa...I can only hope the dragonfly escaped! You all know me by now...if I would've realized what was going on the day that I took that photo...I would've made sure that spider took a dive into the pond...for the fish, of course! I do wonder, though, how that played out, both being so skilled at hunting?!
