STOPS ALONG THE WAY

MEADOWHAWK DRAGONFLY

Meadowhawk

I was keen to get out with my 105mm lens and and do some close-up/macro photography after a very long, cold winter. We spotted the first dragonflies in our area a few weeks ago, their colouring is getting more spectacular as the days pass and there are increasing varieties of them to photograph. I came across this meadowhawk along the trail and did my best not to cast a shadow which I knew would chase him off. Happily he didn’t spook and I managed to get this shot.

  1. I love dragonflies. I once sat by a high mountain lake in Utah, in a swarm of mosquitoes, when a dozen dragonflies zoomed in and began to pick off the mosquitoes by the dozen, paying no notice of me. Incredible experience. And you captured this one so well.
