Red Dragon

Long Pine Key, Everglades National Park, FL


From the archives...


It was very breezy, I didn't have a macro lens and shooting these skittish guys is anything but easy - I don't have the MrClean charm. But funnily enough, although they didn't stay still very long, they always seemed to come back to the same place... at least once in a while. So you just had to wait and hope that the blade of grass they were holding on to didn't move too much. And then, of course, there was the issue that the dragonfly might be right in front of your nose, I mean lens, but you only got the butt of it to see...
