I had a subject in mind, a mission to accomplish when I went in search with my camera this afternoon....and look what I found instead!
Thankfully this golden dragonfly hopped and hovered around, not in too much of a hurry to leave our backyard.
So what was my mission? To check up on this surprise poppy from yesterday!
Hope you all have a pleasant weekend, finding beauty in the expected and unexpected.

Absolutely gorgeous, your photography is stunning as is your subject matter!! I always love visiting your blog.
you ticked all the boxes offering dragonfly and poppy in the same post! Absolutely beautiful nature's bounty portrayed. Love your background music too.
Traurig lässt die Libelle ihre Flügel hängen, sie fühlt den nahen Winter...
Sehr schöne Macros!

So so pretty!!!
The dragonflies around here don't seem to want to sit still long enough for me to take a shot at them. Wonderful crisp details on yours.
The petals on that gorgeous poppy, look like tissue paper.
I like these pictures very much..... very well done again.
Two fabulous captures. Your macro of the dragonfly is incredible, well done.
Great photo of the dragonfly, I have often tried to get one but they are usually too quick for me!
You really are a master in marcro shooting, Love it and the dragonfly is a welcome guest there.
These are stunning! I just can't get over the details you are able to capture.
Wow, a pink poppy???
Enjoyed this series. Shows what patience and stealth you have to photograph a dragonfly. Keep them coming! -K

I've never seen a golden dragonfly. Very beautiful Photography.
I can see why you were after the poppy. It is truly lovely. But what a wonderful surprise the dragonfly...and how thoughtful of it to sit still a moment so you could snap a couple of photos for our viewing pleasure! Glad you went out at just the right time!
Your dragonfly photos are amazing! The detail you were able to capture just blows me away.
Such delicacy in both of your shots; the dragonfly wings as well as the flower petals are quite inspiring. Thanks for sharing them with us!
Oh I just love that delicate pink poppy! I hope to find pink to plant around here too! And the wings on that amazing creature... they are just spectacular! Beautiful post!!
The dragonfly is amazing. We have had swarms before and I love standing and watching them. Your flowers remind us here that spring will come again....we just have to get through the snow!
Those are great dragonfly shots! and what a welcome 'surprise'!
