Yesterday, I spent with the guy I property manager for. He had things for me to do, which included sitting on the front step of a building, waiting for the water meter guy (who was changing it out) for an hour and a half. I had the camera, but it was windy and I didn’t get any good shots. AJ worked, so I didn’t see him.
This morning, I was going through some of my old photos. I thought I’d share a few. Today, obviously, it’s dragonflies. I have tons of these, by the way. I went through an entire summer shooting almost nothing else, and I got some gorgeous ones. These are by no means “the best,” they’re just the first ones I happened across that I thought you’d enjoy. I hope to get some new ones this year; the new camera should allow me to get closer than ever before, though I admit, I never had much problem. By the end of that summer, they were following me around and, I swear, posing for me.
Ebony Jewelwing. I love these guys. They’re so beautiful and varied.
Dot Tail Whiteface. Common here, but I’m particularly fond of them because their ‘smile’ is so obvious.
And finally, breeding. They do this a lot. Considering their lives are incredibly short, I’m not surprised I see this all the time. These are our dot tails again.
