A cherry on wings!
How close did you have to get to take this photo? As always, your wildlife shots are amazing!
Thanks Vlad. I sat down near the dragonfly and stretched my arms putting the camera slowly right in front of its face to get this macro. It was a fun challenge. Cheers
I like it!
Thanks Azra. I still haven't succeeded in taking photos of the blue ones. There were many of them in the same area where this red one, but they just kept flying around and didn't land on anything. Maybe someday.
Grazie Antonio :)
What a beautiful insect!
Thanks Hiltrud. They look even more majestic when they are in flight. I like to watch them.
I love dragonflies. I grew up with a man-made pond in my backyard, where we'd get a variety of wildlife and insect visitors.
Thank you. It is fun to watch them hunt and rest by the water.
micro Helicopter of the animal world ... so perfect flying machine that i cant help admiring them... very nice shot and thanks for posting..
Yes, they are definitely amazing and tireless. I would love to take a close up like that of a blue one sometime, but so far I had much more luck with the red ones. Thanks for the comment.
Great shot! I wish this amazing hunter much success eating mosquitos.
Thank you. I also cheer for all kinds of creatures that find mosquitos to be a delicacy!
