~ DragonFly Macro / All Sizes ~

Newer Older

FULL size for non-flickr visitors
This odd colored dragonfly caught my eye while I walked by, I had to stop.
First is the bright green colour, then the smoothness in the eyes. The eyes look out of focus until you see the original size that is available. I'm wondering if this is a sign of being young for a dragonfly?

TYPE UPDATE : Green Darner dragonfly

Many recent visitors asked about my shot settings and stuff, so... for this shot -

Sorry for the double Insect load, but this afternoon, as you can see, I found another interesting critter with really neat features. Hope it's enjoyed.
BIG HELLO from Ottawa, Canada.

    I still think it is frightening. It probably has something that magnifies what he sees or a fantastic sense of smell and touch.
