Nice one! Dragon flies elude me ...

kenfowkes on June 12, 2013

Thanks Kevin! These Flame Skimmer's are photographer friendly. When they find a perch they like they return to it frequently, so one can set up there and wait. This one let me photograph it from all sides, but it was these back-lit angles I think came out the best.

This is also a wonderful shot, Ken! Flame Skimmers are so beautiful! I'd love to see one in real!:) This one goes to my favorites with a YSL! Best regards, Anne

Grabs the attention immediately (as much as the dragonfly is grabbing the twig-let).


Best wishes, Andy
