My first dragon close-up

Post by nephiliim »

Hey folks,

Found this feller in the vegetable-garden nex to our house. It was perching in the sunlight. I was able to make 5 good shots before it was spooked by a toddler on his bike.


Hope you like it


Comments and advice allways welcome.

All the best,

Tom B

Gotta love those eyes. Dragonflies always make great subjects. Nice shot Tom. :wink:

Nice focus on this dragonflies head, and a good background.

If this is photographed in Europe, I think it's a Sympetrum striolatum.

cheers Erland
