November Theme Day: Out of Focus


I remember taking this picture and thinking I wish I could use it, but it's out of focus. Who knew it would be perfect for a future Theme Day! This dragon fly was perched on a branch overlooking a pond at Dorothy Oven Park.

The first day of the month is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo community and this month's theme is "Out of Focus". Be sure to visit the CDP Theme Day gallery to see contributions from other members.

Hello, pretty dragonfly! Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

Ha! I've got a lot of those I could use. What I like about these, though, is that sometimes the emphasis upon color and form is enhanced.

The wings are still amazing looking - beautifully irridescent color.

Ha! That is a fun theme...I'm sure some of my photos would fit right in. I just hate it when I have a beautiful shot, and it ends up out of focus. Glad you found a good use for this one!

Gee, Lois, if this is the most out of focus photo you can find, my hat is off to you. I must delete four or five worse ones every day.

In or out of focus, dragonflies are such wonderful subjects to try to capture.
