Dragonfly Photo Study

I shot this dragonfly at my in-laws' house in San Jose last week. This is most likely a Cardinal Meadowhawk. Thanks Chris for pointing in the right direction.

These are absolutely amazing shots. The detail is perfect. My best dragonfly shots aren't close to being this perfect. Look at the little hair on its legs. Eeeewww!

A little creepy but amazing all at the same time. He certainly was patient as you circled your way around, camera in hand.

Hope you and B had a great time in CA and a good trip home.

Excellent close up Steve. I don't think I've ever seen a Dragonfly with this colouring. Cheers Frank.
