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.
Excellent close-ups, Reed. The second is posing nicely! Didn’t realize you are in NJ, my home state. Exit 142 😀.
Thanks Jane! We used to live in Bergen County. Now we are by Exit 8 on the turnpike.
Two more excellent dragonfly shots, Reed!
Thanks so much Steve! They are fun photo subjects!
Nice!!! We have a lot of Blue Dashers here, but I never managed to get the clear shot.
Thanks! They can be quick & be difficult to get a good image! I tend to use telephoto lenses so I am not close to get my images!
All the more impressive with how much detail you capture!
Beautiful dragonfly shots and an nice park, that’s for sure 🙂
Thanks! They are fun photo subjects! I tend to use telephoto lenses so my subject dragonflies stand out against a soft background.
Realy great shots !
Thanks so much! They are fun photo subjects!
