I am still going through my images of dragonflies I photographed at Davidson’s Mill Pond Park in NJ. It has been extremely hot here in New Jersey. That seems to make the dragonflies even more active. But seems to have the reverse effect on me! Here are two images of 2 different Widow Skimmers. Images focus stacked and assembled in Photoshop. Shot with a 400mm f/4 lens, extension tube then a 1.4x teleconverter to achive closer focusing on the dragonfly. It is fun to hunt for Dragonflies here because I am finding some I have not found where I used to live.
Beautifully done! It’s a great summer for dragonflies here as well.
Thanks Belinda! They are fun and challenging at the same time!
Interesting how many US dragonflies have patterned wings, here in the UK they don’t. Nice shots again.
Thanks! Yes, here it is challenging to even figure out which ones they are! Male – Female – Immature, can look totally different which can be confusing at times.
Incredible. Your image is so sharp!
Thank You! I try hard to get as much in focus with focus stacking, but they are moving a little and the wind is usually blowing them around also on the grasses they are on. But overall I like what I can get.
