What's a visit


What's a visit to the swamp area without a few shots of dragonflies.


I am pretty sure it is the same dragonfly in both photos.  Just compare the wings.

You always manage to get fantastic shots of the dragonflies. Those wings look a little on the ragged side.

I think you're right. And that second one I love the way the face appears to have an expression on him as he stares at the camera or maybe it's a she staring at the camera

He looks as though he's had a short but adventurous life to judge by the state of those wings! Lovely close-ups.

Excellent shots. They are amazing creatures.

I like the top one for all the interesting lines running through it, and the full body/wings of the dragonfly. I like the bottom one for the better capture of his face, though the missing wingtips are a minus.

I wish I saw the dragonfly like you do often, Rose. What an exceptional photo that second one is.
