Going through old images I have not worked on before, I found this series on what I think is a Teneral Dragonfly that must have recently emerged a little before I spotted it. The wings looking very crystalline like and it did not seem able to fly yet. I have seen a quite few when I had my own pond and was always fun to see and photograph. Not sure exactly what kind it is but it stayed where it was for quite a while before I moved on. Images taken with a Canon 400mm f/4 DO lens with extension tubes since it was closer than the minimum focus of the lens. 1/50th sec @ f/8 ISO 400.
Thank You!! You never know what you will find when you are just walking around!
Omigosh, such incredible detail!
Thanks! It is fun to see how much detail you can get!
Beautiful photos. It looks like an Eastern Amberwing.
Thanks! That was the ID I was leaning towards! But many times a general does not have much color or it changes as it goes on.
