Dragonfly: photo and lifestyle

In 13 years, you’d think that I would have photographed twins before. (I have photographed a couple of older twins, but never babies).

This was so fun. Kensley and Abigail were so easy and such calm little babies.



I adore the expressions on their sweet little faces.

In this one, Kensley is winking at Kristie.

I love these family ones.

I couldn’t decide if I liked the black and white, or the colour better

Congratulations Harrison and Kristie – you have a lovely family.

Tradition

How many years before something is a tradition? I love, and am so grateful that I get to photograph this family year after year.

Check out thier wall!

It also pleases me that every year, the photos are different. Never the same background or feel – always growing and changing.

This year, T was pushing back a little on the posing, but, that’s ok – that is what I am good at. Getting the genuine laughter in between.

D has developed a new smile. It was hard for me to get his dimples – but I did, at the end.

This is also tradition – showing me their Halloween costumes before I go.

Thank you, as always. And we’ll see you next year!

Growing up

Sarah was one of the first children I photographed when I started my business 13 years ago. AND SHE’S GETTING MARRIED!

I can’t even. (At almost 13 years in business, I am thrilled that I am getting to see my babies growing up.)

Her fiance Jason is lovely. He’s kind, he clearly adores her. Their energy together is great. I am so happy for her. Wedding next August! Stay tuned.

I mostly do engagement photos so the couple feel comfortable in front of the camera. I don’t want them to feel like a deer in the headlights on their wedding day.

Idylic Childhood

I’ve been photographing these guys when they were babies. Look at them now! They’ve moved to their grandparent’s farm and have all the fun animals and adventures.

My favourite kind of dogs. These are Pyrenese cross, and they are big, lovely and protect the sheep.

Lily is very hands on with the animals. Piper – not so much (I feel you girl! Watching the two of you was like going back in time to when I was little with my sister).

This is my favourite from the session.

Piper’s expression kills me!

The BEST big brother.

This swing is awesome – it goes really high and looks scary but is actually really safe.

And, I had to do a country road picture. I love the cats at the edge of the frame.

How to Distinguish Between a Dragonfly and a Damselfly

  • B.A., Political Science, Rutgers University

No other insects symbolize summer quite like the group of colorful, primitive-looking predatory insects we generally call dragonflies. In the late summer garden, they resemble tiny animal fighter jets, fierce-looking but also beautiful and fascinating.

In reality, these members of the insect order Odonata include not only the true dragonflies but also a closely related group known as damselflies. The order includes roughly 5,900 species, of which about 3,000 are dragonflies (suborder Epiprocta, infraorder Anisoptera), and about 2,600 are damselflies (suborder Zygoptera).

Dragonflies and damselflies are both predatory flying insects that look primitive and ancient because they are: fossil records show prehistoric species that are quite similar to modern species, although considerably larger. Modern dragonflies and damselflies are most prevalent in tropical regions, but some species can be found in almost every part of the world except for the polar regions.

Physical Characteristics

Taxonomists divide the Odonata into three suborders: Zygoptera, the damselflies; Anisoptera, the dragonflies; and Anisozygoptera, a group somewhere in between the two. However, the Anisozygoptera suborder includes only two living species found in India and Japan, which are rarely encountered by most people.

Dragonflies and damselflies are often confused with one another because they share many characteristics, including membranous wings, large eyes, slender bodies, and small antennae. But there are also clear differences between dragonflies and damselflies, outlined in the table below. In general, dragonflies are studier, thicker-bodied insects, while damselflies have longer, thinner bodies. Once the obvious differences are learned—eyes, body, wings, and resting position—most people find it fairly easy to identify the insects and tell them apart. More serious students of the odonates may want to examine the subtle differences in wing cells and abdominal appendages.

Both dragonflies and damselflies are seen in a wide range of sizes and colors. Colors may be dull or brightly metallic hues of greens and blues. Damselflies have the widest range of sizes, with wingspans ranging from about 3/4 inch (19 mm) in some species to 7 1/2 inches (19 cm) in larger species. Some fossil Odonata ancestors have wingspans of more than 28 inches.

Life Cycle

Dragonflies and damselflies lay their eggs in or near water. Hatched larvae go through a series of molts as they grow, and begin predatory feeding on the larvae of other insects and on small aquatic animals as they move toward the adult stage. The Odonata larvae themselves also serve as an important food source for fish, amphibians, and birds. Larval dragonflies and damselflies reach adulthood in as little as three weeks or as long as eight years, depending on species. They go through no pupal stage, but near the end of the larval stage, the insects begin to develop wings, which emerge as useable flight organs after the last molt of the larval stage.

The adult flying stage, which can last as long as nine months, is marked by predatory feeding on other insects, mating, and finally laying eggs in water or moist, boggy areas. During the adult stage, dragonflies and damselflies are largely immune to predators, except for some birds. Not only do these insects pose no danger to humans, but they consume large quantities of mosquitoes, gnats, and other biting insects. Dragonflies and damselflies are visitors we should welcome to our gardens.

Pictures for tracing for beginners and advanced

For those who like to experiment and paint with colors, we have put together more than seventy great pictures to trace. Some of them are suitable for beginners, others for advanced learners. If you feel like putting your creativity to work and trying out new ideas and painting techniques, you’ve come to the right place. Regardless of whether you like drawing with watercolor, oil or acrylic paints, lead, graphite or colored pencils or perhaps pastel crayons, you will find inspiration for your own works . Nevertheless, there is a painting technique that prevails in our picture gallery and namely – painting with watercolors. We also give some practical tips that make painting with watercolors even more enjoyable and uncomplicated.

What material do you need for painting with watercolors?

  • special watercolor paper, individually or as a painting block
  • high-quality watercolors – twelve colors are completely sufficient for beginners
  • Proper brushes – Choose brushes with natural animal hair as they absorb more color and water and deliver both evenly

Which motifs can be painted with watercolors?

  • almost all motives, but most preferred are landscapes, flowers and trees

For whom is this painting technique suitable?

  • for experienced painters and beginners, as painting with watercolors is a varied painting technique and at the same time leads quickly to a final product

What should beginners consider when painting with watercolors?

  • It’s best to start with the wet-on-dry technique
  • Always paint from light to dark
  • Clean the brush not only with water, but also with detergent after painting
  • Always store the watercolors behind glass
  • Always use a sufficiently large worktop
