Dragonfly In Flight

Dragonfly Season Begins

And there it was, hovering right in front of me over the pond. My shutter speed was only 1/800 but I took it any way as this was the first dragonfly I’ve seen this year.  He stayed around a bit but my subsequent efforts at a higher speed weren’t as good as this one.

Nearby a second dragonfly, perhaps an Eastern Pondhawk, kept returning to this log, looking like he’s not quite ready for action.

With spring just beginning there will be ample opportunity for some better images of these curious creatures.

Just to round out the scene, here’s the log with the dragonfly about 2/3 of the way back.
