August Dragonfly

Still on dragonflies. When I look out at the pond there are dozens of dragonflies and they are in groups all around the pond. I've never seen so many and just can't stop watching them.

Don't you love how the light changes with the seasons and the sun. So I got my 'new to me' Sigma 400 mm lens today in the mail. And the following Dragonfly photos are with this large lens. I'm happy with the quality of the glass, and the clarity of the photos. Bit of a learning curve though. I'm very excited, and it was only $299 with 25$ shipping... the Nikon one is almost 10,000$!
Fabulous colour and capture

@cyn_kirby Apparently they had down like that to cool off, rather than just perching on a twig. Thank you so much.

@elkereturns Yes, I'm seeing a lot of that now. However, there are still fresh ones popping out as well. Pretty soon I'll be able to match the tatters to specific dragonflies... like with whale tales, lol. I posted a different photo yesterday as well, of a newly hatched one. Thank you for commenting.

@will_wooderson Thanks, and yes I really have to pinch myself, I can't believe I got it for so little. I wasn't sure what shape it would be in but it fit my Nikon D810 perfectly and Voila.

@helenhall Thanks, Helen, it just like having a stronger pair of binoculars... I can now see things much further away, and can take photos without having to be right beside my subject.

@robz Thanks, yes I do have quite a few now. Perhaps I should do a series of dragonfly cards for fun.
