A Dragonfly covered in dew-drops.
I wasn't sure if it was alive or not.

definitely you should advise to see full strength, john! this is amazing. and it does seem frosty at first glance. may we presume he was alive and just hovering long enough for you to capture his glory?

Your presumption of the hover is incorrect Stephanie, I am of the thinking that it landed there the night before, (they must overnight somewhere), and over the course of the night there was a heavy dew, I think that when the sun came up and warmed the land, (and the dragonfly), and evaporated the dew it would return to normal and fly away, more or least like it was in hibernation.

Thanks for the comment timeless; I'm glad you like.

I guess it does look frosted; and better in original view.
Thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments of late Annamaria, I just haven't had the time to reply, there's a bit going on at the moment in my life, mostly work, boring!

Thanks for the comment Tony; I'm happy that you like my capture.

I real terms it doesn't get that cold here in Perth, not as you and I know cold, so as much as it looks frozen it is only covered in dewdrops.
I thank you so much for all of your lovely comments, I am just too busy to answer them all, but I do appreciate them very much.

I thank you so much Hans for all of your great comments, I have been too busy to answer them all, but I do appreciate them very much, thank you my friend.

A heavy dew is about as cold as it gets here in Perth Saffi; certainly not the cold that I remember in my old country.
Thank for your comments.
