Eastern Amberwing In Our Yard

Lately we have quite a few Eastern Amberwing Dragonflies in our yard. It is fun to watch them flying around in our gardens. For this post I am showing a series of Eastern Amberwing males. All images were taken with a Canon 300mm lens with a 1.4x teleconverter on a Canon 7D.

    • Thanks so much! They are smaller than most dragonflies and I usually do not see many of them around. But lately we have a lot in our yard.

  1. Awesome shots of this beautiful dragonfly that is not common where we live. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Thanks so much Steve! We have had quite a few Amberwings in our yard lately! Fun to have a bunch of subjects to photograph right outside our door!

    • Thanks so much! I try to get smooth backgrounds but still have good detail on the dragonfly, especially on the wings! I usually use f/8 or f/11 but depends on how busy the background is and what lens I am using.

    • Thanks Steve! We seem to have a lot of Amberwings in our yard & gardens year! Usually we had Blue Dashers, but only saw a couple this year.
