You Can’t Catch Me – Daily Prompt: Ha Ha Ha

When last our dragonfly appeared in this blog, she was perched enticingly on the tip of heron’s beak.

Did you wonder if dragonfly became lunch that day?

(Spoiler alert.)

See for yourself.

Dragonfly teasing great blue heron.

Is it just me, or did you also hear a dragonfly’s voice sing-songing that childhood playground taunt, “Nah nah nah boo-boo, you can’t catch me?”
Thanks for the Daily Prompt nudge, Michelle W and WordPress.

  1. Amazing! (Thank you very much for the follow!)

    • You’re welcome for the follow, and thanks, this was one of those fun, lucky moments that happen so quickly a person isn’t sure things were in focus until the frames are downloaded – always a pleasing surprise when that happens.

  2. Love how you captured the dragonfly’s escape!! lovely photos!

    • Thanks for complimenting this photo. It was fun watching this heron-dragonfly encounter. I’m glad the dragonfly got away, even if it meant the heron had to look elsewhere for a snack that afternoon.

  3. Really funny and (he & she ) play like a tomboy!

  4. Great capture and fun picture. Love the fact there was a happy ending to the photo story.

  5. Yes, the Dragonfly knew when to get away! They literally have eyes in the back of their head!
