Say a prayer before takeoff.
It's no secret, I love dragonflies, damselflies, skeeter hawks, whatever you choose to call them. they are my favorites in the garden.
They pose so nicely for the camera, never shy away and always seem to be smiling.
Each one with it's individual colors and markings, a work of art.
This guy, with his herringbone tweed pants, found an overripe cucumber that was hiding from view until it turned a bright yellow in the kids' garden.
The foxgloves that I planted this year are finally staring to bloom.
The hibiscus, along with the rest of us, are wilting in the extreme heat.
The figs are liking it though, they are ripening and bursting at the seams with sweet goodness.
It'll soon be time for fig jam and maybe even some candied figs (Sshhhhh) if we get enough before the birds find them!
Head on over to Lori's at Studio Waterstone for the rest of the macro goodness and maybe even join in!
