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
First of all, what a cool name for this butterfly! In Dutch this species is called Atalanta – after the Latin name, but Red Admiral sounds very cool 🙂 Today I’ve got two photographs, one with the wings closed and one with the wings opened. Luckily the butterfly was buzzing around my head and landing close by so i could should both. My personal preference goes out to the wings closed, since this side of the wings is so incredibly patterned and colored. And yet, with it’s wings fully open, it’s also a beauty.. why would i make a choice anyway lol..
