This Needham’s Skimmer was perched close to the ground and out of the breeze, a nice fit for using the Tamron 180mm macro lens.
The angle and background worked well to pick up the orange tones.
He didn’t move far between these shots, trying out some different perches almost like a model.

Well captured, Ellen👌🏾
Once again, a beauty Ellen.
Enjoy the weekend.
Thank you, Rudi. Same to you, some adventures in nature, I hope!
Beautiful shots, Ellen, of a dragonfly that has disappeared already from my local area. Wonderful shots with one of my favorite lenses (as you know).
Thanks, Mike! We are seeing very few dragonflies, even though it hasn’t been that cold. I was pretty happy with these and the dragonfly being near the ground sure helped.
