Two close-up images of female Blue Dasher Dragonflies. I use a variety of techniques to get very close to Dragonflies. The featured image was captured with a Sigma 150mm macro with a 1.4X teleconverter on a Canon 7D. Luckily they sometimes get used to me and allow me to get very close.
Very stunning first photograph!
Thanks William! They are fun to photograph closeup!
Wonderful, and those eyes!
Thanks Belinda! Their eyes are interesting when you see them close up!
“Jeepers, creepers, where’d you get those peepers? Jeepers, creepers, where’d you get those eyes?” 😀
Nice Eliza! Well said!
WOW these captures are incredible, Reed, what detail! And colors!!
Thanks so much Donna! It is fun to get very close to photograph them! Sometimes they seem to be tolerant to get that close!
