My first semi dedicated dragon venture

  1. 70-300vr handheld. Damsels with macro. I do see how using a tripod next time would be less aggravation than I thought. I have noticed that they often repeatedly land on the same spot over and over. I wish I could have gotten this Damselfly with the wings open.

    I can't help but thinking that if you take away the eyes on the 4th one down the face looks like a monkey or something. They kept opening and closing their mouth but I was never fast enough naturally. Fun!

    I really like the 2nd Damsel picture. Nice dragon hunt...
     
  3. Thanks. Was fun. Seeing 5 of them flitting around in a group was like watching jewels
