Male Calico Pennant Dragonfly

Another Dragonfly image from our walk at the Audubon Plainsboro Preserve. The featured image is made from 2 images shot with a 300mm lens with a 1.4X Teleconverter @ f/8. I usually shoot my series of images starting at the head and work my way back down the body. I would have shot 1 more image for the tail but it flew off before I could get that shot.

Male Calico Pennant Dragonfly, 300mm lens, 1.4X Teleconverter @ f/8, Canon 7D. This is the 1st image in series showing forewing & hindwing tips are a little soft.

  1. So bright. I once found a field loaded with female calicos. It was quite a treat crawling from plant to plant photographing them. I’ve never posted them on the blog though.

  2. I just love this, Reed! We have Halloween Pennant dragonflies here, but I’ve never seen this brightly colored Calico. What a beauty!

    • Thanks Denise! They are fun to photograph! And fun to try different techniques to get what you want sharp in the image!
