Made It Easy For Me

Made It Easy For Me

A while ago I decided swapping a lens while out in a marsh / swamp was rarely a good idea. Especially a big long heavy one. And yes, it’s experience that taught me that. Nothing like bouncing and bending a Canon L series lens.

This just means my options are limited when shooting the small guys. A quick focus, change of the f stops and take a look to see what I may do.

On these not much to worry about. If he is in focus, pull the trigger.

  1. Really cool shots, Ted, of this male Eastern Pondhawk–the green face makes identification pretty easy. I love how you captured the moment in the second shot when he had tilted his head back, presumably to get a better look at you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Like Mike I also love the second shot, agreeing with what he said and I also like the dragonfly shadow on the leaf blade which to me adds a lot of character and perhaps even mystery to the shot. I love it! Well done and thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Excellent macro of this dragonfly! So sharp and with so many details. I usually blur the wings of dragonflies but in your photo they are nicely sharp.
