I’ve been watching a couple of dragonflies in the yard, lately, and waiting to see where they might land, so that I could… again… try to get a decent shot. (Its something I have failed at, for a number of years.) Yesterday, I only had a 55mm manual lens on the camera (Pentax K-5) and did not expect much, the dragonfly was flitting here and there and barely remained in any location for very long. However, he took pity on me (thats what I like to think, anyway) and hovered nearby for just long enough.
The shot is cropped, resized and post processed, it looked a little less, straight out of the camera 🙂
