Blue Dasher Dragonflies @ Davidsons Mill Pond Park

On our visit to Davidsons Mill Pond Park the dragonflies were flying far out in the small pond. And almost none were flying by the large Lake. After searching the shorelines I was able to get a few Dragonfly images to post here. For this post I am showing images of a Blue Dasher (male) dragonfly. Some of the dragonflies looked a little worse for wear already in the season with wing damage.

  1. Excellent close-ups, Reed. The second is posing nicely! Didn’t realize you are in NJ, my home state. Exit 142 😀.

    • Thanks! They are fun photo subjects! I tend to use telephoto lenses so my subject dragonflies stand out against a soft background.
