Shameless intrusion

Post by Mike B in OKlahoma »


Yesterday morning was my last day in Washington, DC, so I got up early and went out photographing (of course). The peak of four hours in the heat was this couple consumating their relationship. I intruded shamelessly, and snagged a series of photos I'm rather pleased with.

Great shot, Mike! Dragonly season is in full swing here in the pacific northwest. They sure are fun to shoot using long glass. Nicely done.

Great capture, Mike, thanks for showing. Not your usual exacting standards of sharpness, but a clean background and a great subject matter.
