Members of the Meadowhawk family were among the most common dragonflies this summer. Fearless little guys who flew in your face, landed on you and generally buzzed around.
A dragonfly in fair or good light can have a lot of highlights that sparkle or catch the light. Sometimes these are in the eyes, on the torso or on the wings (or all three). Sometimes there is little you can do about it in-camera and post processing may not solve the problem without adding its own artifacts.
Nonetheless they are beautiful creatures whose beauty hides one of nature’s most efficient predators. At rest they seem placid and yet their eyes are seeking more prey. They are the drones of the wilderness.
