I think so. 8D

Another fabulous macro and great quote. When that smiling man points his finger at someone else, he must remember that four of his fingers are pointing back at himself. Paraphrased quote from Louis Nizer, lawyer to the rich and famous.

posted September 26th, 2012  
A great, big, mysteriously smiling, up close and personal "THANK YOU!" to everyone! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. Very glad to know you've enjoyed the shot. He was on a tall plant, sitting at eye level, and for that I was grateful. (Because I've hurt my back before trying to shoot bugs in strange, hard-to-get-at, low places.) I find dragonflies fascinating to look at, and can never resist shooting one when I find one. Again, thank you so much for your kind comments and encouragement!
