We went for a walk at a local park looking for Dragonflies. We saw quite a few but not many close enough to get good photos of them. This year, so far, they seem wary and stay at a distance. This Common Whitetail landed close by on a piece of wood on our way out. Shot with a 300mm lens setup for close focusing for Dragonflies.
I saw one of these this weekend. Amazing insects!
It is amazing how they dart around! Fun to watch! Also when you get really close their eyes and wing patterns are cool to photograph. Have yet to get that close this year so far.
That’s a gorgeous little creature and a superb photo!
Thanks! They are fun to photograph. Plus challenging at the same time! It helps when they cooperate!
