Meadowhawks

Massachusetts has three Meadowhawks of the genus Symptrum which are listed as "indistinguishable". These Meadowhawks are damn beautiful and fun to shoot. These were shot in Gloucester up near the Blackburn Center in Dogtown.

I still like my Mom's tern for them - mosquito hawks! It is funny how this ancient creature (from before the dinosaurs has no fear of us. Put your finger up and they will kand on it.

WOW Steve!! What wonderful shots again. I think you should start doing more macro photography. I promise once you start, there will be no end. LOL!!

It is realy cool how the sun reflected off their eyes has a hexagonal shape. That must be from the underlying hexagonally faceted surface of thier compound eyes. Lovely shots.

Yes they are beautiful and probably the most funny thing to try to get a nice picture of! Well done, I love your compo on these ones.
