Spangled Skimmer Dragonfly @ Davidsons Mill Pond Park

We were going for a walk at the Davidsons Mill Pond Park so I took a camera with me to look for some dragonflies to photograph. Most of the Dragonflies were far out buzzing around the small pond but I did manage to get a few images there to post. Then we went down to the larger lake and got a few more Dragonflies resting in the bushes by the larger lake. I was traveling light with an Olympus OM D 1 with a 100-300mm lens since I did not think the Dragonflies would be very active at noon. The Olympus m43 camera & lens @ 300mm has the Field of View of a Full Frame Canon camera @ 600mm. For this post I am showing images of a Spangled Skimmer Dragonfly. I usually do not see this type of dragonfly so it was fun to see & photograph!

Dragonfly Wing Damage

It is starting to be the time of year when dragonflies start to show signs of wear & tear on their wings. It seems they must lead a rough life from the looks of wear on some of them. The featured image is a male Slaty Skimmer Dragonfly.
