Dragonflies

I managed to capture a few dragonfly images while out and about.

This one was having a hard time staying on a grass stem, as it was pretty windy at the time.



This one I think must have been laying eggs under the water lilly leaf, as it had its hind parts in the water for much of the time. In this image it had just recovered from the leaf and insect being blown right over in the water. To put that in perspective - the wingspan of this Green Emperor butterfly averages about 11 cm!!

Re: Dragonflies

I like both. Maybe lighten the first one a bit?! The one in the 2nd shot looks huge and ready to launch.

Re: Dragonflies

Thank you, Sabine. I will have a bit more of a play with the first one, as you suggest, thanks. Yes, that second one is indeed huge. I have seen them around, but have never been able to get a picture because they move so far and so fast, and never seem to rest. In sunlight they are absolutely brilliant, with iridescent blue and green. Sue

Re: Dragonflies

These are quite nice, Sue. That first on emust be large, since I assume you didn't take your gear into the pond to capture it.
