BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

EYE TO EYE (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

33 Comments

I’ve found that when startled, a dragonfly will fly off but will often return to the same spot. That is what happened here although on its return it landed at a different angle. We get a good number of dragonflies over the summer, I believe this is a variety of meadowhawk.

  4. Beautifully photographed Belinda! I was trying to get some photographs of a few today, but the stinkers kept their heads turned away from me more times than not!

  5. Yes, it seems that they (intelligently) re-land in the same spot to “let” you photograph them! Very nice shots, Belinda! 🙂

  7. Beautiful captures, Belinda! They do often re-land in the exact same spot–nice you could get two views and those green leaves made a great perch.

  9. Very Nice Belinda! It does seem like they tend to return to the same general area and hopefully for a good photo angle!
