Obviously missed focusing on his eyes.

While I have seen tons of blue and black dragonflies around my area, red ones or even yellows ones, like the ones Peter captured, are rare, or rather, I have not seen them. When I saw these red ones I had to shoot a few times.

Looks like we both had dragonflies on our minds today! I have yet to ever see a red one - these are beautiful! I love the weathered wood background in #3. Great shots!

Thanks Bethany. Two insects that cause me to shoot, shoot, shoot, almost fill my cards up are dragonflies and butterflies. Something about them just intrigues me.

Very nice captured. I have been told that the yellow ones here are the females of the red ones;

They are fun to capture. It does become a challenge since they ADHD smile
