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.
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.
Thanks Steve! Can not imagine seeing a whole field loaded with them! That must have been GREAT!
I’ll post a couple of them soon, Reed. Of course, I do not have a picture of the field where you can see them. 🙂
Looking forward to see them!!
Wow, fabulous photo, Reed!
Thanks so much Eliza!! They are fun to photograph! Especially the Bright Color Ones!!
I just love this, Reed! We have Halloween Pennant dragonflies here, but I’ve never seen this brightly colored Calico. What a beauty!
Thanks so much! They are fun photo subjects!!
Lovely shot, Reed!
Thanks Belinda! They do stand out against a green background!!
Wowza, excellent Reed! 🤗 🤗

Again, one of your awesome dragonfly photos. Always enjoy watching them.
