5-29-2010… Smilin’ Dragon
This guy/gal was flyin’ around the yard during the day. It had landed on the dried flower stem…it was not disturbed by our taking its picture. In fact, it seemed to be posing with a smile…
Absolutely fantastic!! And the composition once again is utterly flawless...and arresting.
You're just a natural charmer, Chuck. Still a flame skimmer. Now, go fetch a blue dasher.
Great close up... not an easy shot to take... nicely done.
It's a male Flame Skimmer, and you did a great job of getting it head first cuz they have great eyesight. Nice shot, Chuck. Now, take a couple of years and get one in flight. I can't. (Hint: look for a female laying eggs. She'll hover awhile.)
I could have captured that, too. But not without previously visiting the taxidermist. LOL
How talented does one have to be to capture such a critter at 75mm? Unbelievably stunning
Terrific shot, Chuck! The detail is stunning.
wow! super details!
this is amazing looking ! love the details in the wings
Stunning! The details are fantastic. Don't think I've ever seen a dragonfly of this color. Wonderful!
Fabulous detail...love it!
