love is in the air
Lots of cozy damsel & dragon pics this trip! :) I got a nice one of some dragonflies as well. Glad to see your guys' pics going up. Thanks SO much for being part of the party. A lot of the folks who came (including me) were anxious (beforehand) and tickled (during/afterwards) to have the two of you able to come out and do the gathering and visit your other friends/relatives out here!!
