My husband and I had the pleasure last night of meeting Don Garrett and his lovely wife Susan at fellow JPGer,Mark Gilliland's photo exhibit in Chatt.,Tn.Mark's photos are great! It was also a pleasure to meet him. We had a ball! This was my first JPG meet-up. So exciting! those of you that know Don,know that he occasionally likes to post a funny photo. A while back Don entitled a photo PLEASE NAME THE SPECIES that featured a PLASTIC dragonfly. Thank goodness i was not the first one on the comment page. No doubt I would have said something like....That is the most unusual dragonfly that i have ever seen.! After looking close at the photo and the comments,I knew that we had been HAD. LOL! Everytime i see a dragonfly now, I think of Don's photo. I got my chance to play a little joke myself last night. I presented Don with an 8x10 of this photo...The Real McCoy. just had to do it.He liked it.This photo is dedicated to Don,my JPG friend.
