great dragonfly photos!

Suzy Blue

If I had to pick a single thing as my muse, rather than the whole of nature, I’d probably have to choose dragonflies. I get such a thrill getting shots of them, and spend far too long hanging around the village pond – just 5 more minutes – trying to get that perfect shot.

Today I got some fantastic shots thanks to an unusually docile dragon. I think it’s an immature male – perhaps only recently emerged from its larval stage. Please enjoy a gradual trip closer and closer into the wondrous eyes of this Common Darter 🙂 (please click on the photos to get the full effect)
