Dragonfly sitting on a little branch about 20 cm above the ground. And also with a spider aboard 🙂
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
Last friday the Common Darter came visiting again and landed on my fathers jacket. I find these dragonflies very interesting, not only because of their nice look up close but also because of their acrobatics in the sky. True and natural helicopters, they soar the sky with amazing agility and precision. Last year i had the opportunity to study them and i noticed that they are skilled and ferocious predators. No insect is safe once they’re within reach.
Note to the smaller beings: So don’t be fooled by the smile, little insects, and respect the dragon(fly) 😉
