This is one of the first photos I posted here on this blog. Came across this while checking the archive on the pc and I thought it was worth to share with you. A little bit different composition and edit makes this new lol. And I guess most of you haven’t seen this beauty before. Take in the smile and have a lovely day today! You may rest and enjoy a nice sweet Sunday 🙂
Today there were lots of Dragonflies at the childrens farm. So it was photographing time 🙂
Dragonfly sitting on a little branch about 20 cm above the ground. And also with a spider aboard 🙂
Lean on, balance yourself for the act. Just as the dragonfly easily balances itself on a branch, i had to balance myself and lean over a little beech hedge to get this shot. At first i was not too happy that the dragonfly had moved from a ‘better’ spot, but seeing the shot with the leaves out of focus actually creates quite a nice atmosphere 🙂 Well, at least that’s what i see in it lol
Still use the first camera once in a while, its a small compact camera (Canon Powershot 470). Really great for macro photography. So probably should get a macro lens to have a bit of fun 🙂 As the temperature is rising, soon insects will start to flourish again. And that means that the dragons will also show up again. These images were shot in the garden, and the dragonfly you see is a Common Darter. Played a bit with colors and black and white for this result
A fresh Beautiful Demoiselle drying in between two sticky leaves of a sticky plant. So delicate altogether, and yet he/she managed to hang on while i tried to get closer.. lucky the Demoiselle didn’t fell off.. Another lesson learned as a photographer: don’t interrupt your subject/environment too much!
