On the Ground Cover

I was attracted by the glittering wings of this small Dragonfly as it perched on a flowering shrub in the garden.

Oh she's like a Fairy Princess! Beautiful images, Ray!
Ray: Nice analogy, Elizabeth.
J'aime beaucoup la première photo et les ailes en filigrane.
Ray: Alors je suis heureux, Martine.
c'est très bon
Ray: Merci, Robet! smile
Not like the ones we normally see, Ray, but still a beauty.
Ray: These small golden ones are very common here, Ginnie, and I can always find them in our garden.
Ray, these are so colourful and the wings are always so beautiful, love the glittering too.
Ray: Yes, Astrid...they are lovely insects.

Oh crikey! All that bling! That really must catch the eye of predators, though?
Ray: I do think their beauty attracts unwonted attention, Alan.

Grandious photographs!

They are so intricate the way Mother nature has designed them.

That top one is excellent. A beauty it is.
The body is like pure gold, the most beautiful one I have ever seen.
Ray: They are very pretty, and very common, Mary.

I managed to get assistance from the Sun here.
This could be a filigree broach Ray
Ray: Ooooops! You are on to my tricks, Bill. smile
Beautiful.
Ray: It is a lively insect, Sheila.
