I took this in my backyard. I have a small goldfish pond over taken this time of year by dragonflies. The blue ones are usually here. The brown and yellow dragonflies are found more along the edge of the woods.

Last May during a severe storm we lost part of a large oak tree on the backside of our woods. Sadie and Iris like to walk there now -- crunching through the pile of leaves from the fallen tree. Dragonflies also like to hang around the leaves and branches. This one caught my eye the other day -- so I took the dogs back to the house and got my camera.

Fooling around one day with a very old digital point and shoot and my daughter's microscope -- I took this photo of a goldfish still in the egg. We have a backyard pond -- so this was scooped and shot and then quickly returned to the pond.
This one was already hatched. The goldfish were of the fancy kind -- with spots. Seeing the eyes on this one gives more perspective for the one in the egg above.

Don't ask me why -- but I love this photo. Yesterday I needed gas -- so as I got out of the car I grabbed the camera. Just as I was wondering what there was to shoot while the gas was filling into the tank, I looked down and saw this. Obviously this is a photo of nothing -- but the color and the geometrics of the composition are very appealing to me.
