Last weekend I spent up in Park City at Cropaganza. Cropaganza is a large crop sponsored by Scrapfunattic in Andover. There were 182 women in attendance and it was a lot of fun. I had been thinking about going for the last few years, but this year I made the plunge and I don't regret it one bit. I was sitting with Carmen Ned and Kathy Clubb. There were a number of other people there I knew as well. It was really nice in that respect to attend a local crop. The crop is held twice a year in February and September, and I want to be there each time.

It didn't hurt that the subject was cooperative. This large dragonfly was buzzing around the front yard this afternoon. He was there when we came home and went to the house and was still there when I came back out with the camera. My main challenge was keeping him in focus, my camera kept wanting to focus on the background, but I worked that technical question out. He allowed me to shoot pictures of him from several angles and up very close. It was like he was posing on purpose.
To be truthful, he is more interesting to look at in the photo that what I could see in real life. I didn't get to appreciate his glowing colors while I was looking at him. Up close he almost shimmers. Thank you Dragonfly for your time.
