Well the weekend is finally here. Now if only I had a little time for myself.
The air is full of dragonflies right now. I think every species came out at the same time this year. I wish I had the time to properly photograph each species I see. I think they are a magnificent little insects. They have the ability to fly in any direction, just like a helicopter. They also help control our mosquito population.

Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see. I look forward to hearing from you. If you like what you see, please rate it. Better yet, bookmark the site and drop back often. I will be posting daily.

Kathe from Marquette, Michigan, United States

Awesome! And I do like the border/framing on this one.

@Kathe: Thank you Kathe. The others were just a test. I had made these frames up quite a while ago. I have many to choose from. They are all sized and ready to use for whatever I wish. These I have an action made in CS2 that I use. I only have to select the colour to fill with.
