Sometimes you don’t have a lot of options when you photograph your subject. You can’t get to the right angle, the sun in on the wrong side, you can’t get close enough, etc. When I spotted the blue dragonfly below, it stayed put, high perched on a tree branch, and didn’t move anywhere else the whole thing I tried to photograph it. So I decided to photograph it from underneath and hoped something good would come out of it. I think my favorite part of this dragonfly on all photos I got is its intricate wings that seem to glitter in the sunlight. I was lucky to have a bright blue sky to use as a background that day.
The wings are amazing. 🙂
Thank you! You can really understand why dragonflies are the fastest flying insects when you look at their powerful wings closely.
Dragonflies are so gorgeous. I love the wings.
Aren’t they incredible? I also love the various colors of dragonflies.
I’m speechless. Yet another beautiful post!
Well, thank you very much!
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I’m glad you liked my dragonfly photos.
I think that top one is screaming for a spot in a calendar! It’s wonderful. Are you going to put another one together for this year?
Yes, I WILL do a 2014 calendar and I’ve been thinking I need to get started pretty quickly. I have so many photos to choose from, it will be tough. So I think I’ll do like last year and make a selection, then ask for input on which photos to use for each month. I have several dragonfly photos to choose from so I’ll definitely want one in there. Just not sure which one yet. Decisions, decisions…
You really do have a talent for spotting your subject. Your images jump off the page.
Well, thank you very much, Carrie! Here’s to more photos!
Yes, keep them coming!
so beautiful! one landed on my leg and sat for quite a while breathing with me the other day.
Wow, you are SO lucky! Most dragonflies can’t stand people being around them. That must have been a great experience.
