SWF - 27 Feb 09

Some favorite sky pictures over the past week:

There were a few spots on the Mekong Riverbank where dragonflies hung in the air this morning.

Tree outlined by the river and the sunrise a few mornings ago.

Bodhi tree

When I returned from Xieng Khouang on Saturday, there was still a bit of sunset. I was amazed to see that the Bodhi tree near my house was covered with new leaves. When I left on Monday morning, the branches were bare.

Patang

One of my favorite views along Route 13, the main north to south road through Laos. This is a view of Patang - the Cliff Throne - about 50 kms. north of Vang Vieng.

This is my contribution to Skywatch Friday, whose members post pictures of the skies around the world.

Ha! I love those dragonflies. I remember as a child I'd be on our yard almost all day catching dragonflies... :)
The other photos are superb too, with those light hues of the sky.

I had to look again when you said those were dragonflies. Those are some serious bugs! At a glance I thought they were birds!

But my absolute favorite of this set is the second shot. Wonderful!

Those dragonfly are absolutely amazing, like mini helicopters.
