~Late Summer Lovin'~

I don't know, one warm afternoon and these guys were at it like rabbits, the Common Darters and Migrant Hawkers were very active indeed today and I was ever so pleased when this pair of luvved up Common Darters settled on an almost isolated grass stem, usually they land on a path or on brambles, but today they actually landed somewhere half decent. Even better is they didn't seem to mind my presence, usually they fly off as soon as I get near.

 

I used my Tamron 180mm macro for this and that gave a nice working distance, I was also using a monopod for a bit of stability. I was tempted to flip the image, but that might give a slight gravity defying feel to the image, so I kept the original orientation.

 

I will try and catch up over the coming days, just felt like cutting down on computer time for the last few days this week :o)

 

VIEW LARGE because new Flickr doesn't seem to favour portrait orientation images, unless you are using a tablet and then everything looks great LOL :o)
