STOPS ALONG THE WAY

DAMSELFLIES (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Damselfly 2

It will be a few months before we see any damselflies or dragonflies, members of the Odonata species of insects. We begin to see the first dragonflies in May, followed by damselflies a little later. They are delicate looking insects and small, the leaves provide a good sense of scale.  I took these photos with my 70-200mm f/2.8.  I use it often for close up photography because I tend to walk around with only one lens (I don’t like to carry much gear).  I had to crop but still managed to get nice detail.

  1. Great! 🙂
    We have tons of them on our riverbank. They are great hunters.

  4. Up close they look like they could have come from some planet in another galaxy. Perfect for alien movie stars. Look at the face of the blue one up close. He’s wearing his space gear.
