When Fashion and Nature Collide: July Edition
Critter Photography Features
The Magical Damselfly
Damselfly – Damselflies are one of my favorite critters to capture in the garden. They are truly fairies in disguise!
These beautiful insects are of the suborder of Zygoptera, in the order Odonata. They are very similar to dragonflies, but are smaller in size. When at rest, most species fold their wings along their body. Damselflies eat small, soft-bodied insects like aphids and mosquitoes. Bonus! These stunning creatures are found on every continent except Antarctica.
The Gray Tree Frog
The Gray Tree Frog: is a species native to much of the eastern United States and southeastern Canada. These magical creatures have the ability to camouflage their lumpy skin, from gray to green. This tree frog is found in woodland ponds and swamps, and is capable of surviving freezing temperatures. These adorable creatures will congregate around house lights, at night, to enjoy a tasty insect feast!

“There is something magical about being nestled among a field of wildflowers or resting on a fern covered forest floor, waiting for gifts from Mother Nature. For me, it is not just about photography…it is about being one with magnificent creatures, up close and personal.”
