So, I had a thought that I would choose my favorite photo from my walk yesterday, and post it. Until I realized I didn’t have just one. What started out as a slow photo walk, ended with several photo successes.
My take away from yesterday is that composition can really make a photo. I’m far from professional, but I do love looking for background and surrounding colors to compliment my main focal point. I think the first three photos below really showcase my point.
And at the bottom you will see my little awesome surprise…

Below are two shots I just love. Dragonflies can mate in flight and I have seen them flying around together in the air, connected. The top photo below shows two of these dragonflies that kept zipping around the area I was walking.
The bottom photo does not show them connected, but they sure are flying close together! Dragonflies are difficult to photograph in flight, I was quite excited to have captured these two.

I appreciate feedback! Do you agree with me? Which is your favorite photo?
