Today I’m participating in Where’s My Backpack’s Travel Theme photo challenge. This week’s theme is “wild”. Remember you can click on each photo for a larger view. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe and receive nature photography updates a few times a week.
I wasn’t sure what photos to use for this theme but the inspiration came to me yesterday, when I got an unexpected visitor in my backyard. If you’ve ever tried to photograph dragonflies, you know they’re not the best subjects and could care less about your requests to sit still. Dragonflies are the fastest flying insects and that makes it a wild encounter if you manage to snap a few photos of them.
Here’s a beautiful orange dragonfly who was kind enough to rest a few inches away from me so I could take a couple of photos with my zoom. That bright orange is quite a wild color too!
