In Search of Angels, Trolls and Dragons

Well, away from festivals and birds I have been searching for a new quarry for summer. I have been slowly getting some images of the summer insects. It is difficult. I have watched many butterflies and dragonflies shoot by me and I stood helpless to respond. I have mainly only photographed those that have landed near me.

Today's post is just a sample, and as often is the case, I may not post all the images I have attained. 

Baby steps for today, as it is time consuming to search through, edit and identify the images I have collected. I think it is worth some effort when I look at the results. They are quite stunning creatures when we stop and look.
