A Couple of Things about Dragonflies (Three Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

Dragonflies often find a place they like to rest and they will sometimes come back to it, so if one flies away, wait just a bit to see if it returns. Dragonfly eyes are hard to focus on, thousands of tiny lenses, best to focus behind the eyes. The bright spots on their eyes are not created by flash, they are created by the sun, easily removed in processing as I have done here. Lastly, dragonflies when they first emerge tend to swarm, and a wide-angle lens helps capture them hanging like Christmas ornaments off the branches.
