Dragonfly Portrait by Japers Dragonfly Portrait by Japers
Late evening, I found this small Dragonfly out hunting for food. It allowed me a few shots and I liked this one best. The wind was blowing pretty strong so I held on to the branch it was perched on to keep the scene still. Hope everyone likes it. :)

I have a Sigma zoom/macro lens and can't get half decent pics with it. :( *envy* The clarity of this shot is amazing. No wonder you can't sneak up on these guys! :lol:

I wonder how you managed to get so close to it without to fly away too soon. :faint:

Thanks Feele! :)

I suppose I’m either very lucky or we have very friendly dragonflies.. Every evening between 4 and 6pm a group (probably 20 or so) of these dragonflies come to feed and sleep in the fruit trees behind our house. They don’t mind me being there at all and they allow me to get close enough to touch them. I haven’t been able to capture one feeding yet, but I hope to soon. Honestly if I was creative enough to come up with more compositions, I would have many many more dragonfly photos in my gallery, heh.
