STOPS ALONG THE WAY

DAMSELFLIES (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

26 Comments

After photographing certain subjects for a while you begin to anticipate their behaviour. In the case of damselflies (and dragonflies) they tend to return to the same perch you might have startled from as you approached. So if you donโ€™t get the shot the first time your chances are good the second time around.

  1. As the damsels are so long and slender, the temptation is great to go for the lateral view to get as much of them as possible in focus, which is why an alternative approach–your first one–can be so rewarding. Nice stuff.

  5. That’s really good to know about the return to the spot. They sure have a unique look – a bit like an alien. (Not that I’ve ever seen an alien – that I know of). Very nice closeup photos!
