A new friend

A pretty little visitor

I had a busy day and evening and didn't get a chance to do much wildflower homework as I had planned.

So instead here's a visitor that flew into the window while I was brushing my teeth. Is it a dragon fly? A damsel fly? Or how about a hybrid bunny that can fly? (Tell me I'm not the only that sees a resemblance.)

so elegant. What sort of size was it?

Maybe dragons are screwin' bunnies in your neck of the woods. If that's the case, you should probably leave.

Great shot nonetheless.

Whatever it is, you did a beautiful job photographing it.

My vote is going to be hybrid flying bunny.

LOL god

Your camera has done a great job of capturing the delicate translucent wings.

I am just wondering how you handled this delicate fly for the shot. I am always so squeamish about things like this. She's not your usual photographic subject, all need delicate handling, albeit in different ways lol

I think you must talk to the animals and get them to sit pretty for you. Are you Mrs Doolittle?

this is a grown up doodle bug... or antlion. a close kin is the owl fly. Like a lot of insects that fly at night or after the sun goes down in dim light, they come to lights at the house.
