2014 07 06 - Dragon

A very frustrating day hunting dragonflies at the local nature reserve, the first visit I found this one. Decided to go back for a further visit this afternoon, but all the available places at the water's edge were full of people, so the camera didn't even get out of the bag :(
It's a fine shot...maybe crop it in tighter though?

I love dragonflies but I wish they loved me, to settle long enough to allow me to take a lovely shot like this.

Fabulous!

@creampuff Thanks Eve, they are so skittish, I read today that they can fly at 18mph forwards and backwards!

@amandal This is heavily cropped already, I didn't take my long lens with me!, might give it another go and see how it looks REALLY cropped!
